Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Who almost killed Ra to get Osiris on the throne?

Answer: Isis

Isis was the wife of Osiris. She wanted to have him take the throne, so she put a cobra in Ra's room. The cobra bit Ra. He was in so much pain he asked Isis to heal him. Isis told him that she would need his secret name, which put Ra under her control. Isis banished Ra to the heavens, and Osiris ruled for 600 years.

Then Set trapped Osiris in a golden casket that sank beneath the earth. And the battle continued!
2. Who is the vulture goddess?

Answer: Nekbet

Nekbet is a goddess who can never pick a side. She is in a close relationship with Babi, the god of the bad side of baboons. Nekbet is the goddess of protection. Naturally she was in a relationship with Ra, who is the god of the sun and goodness. Nekbet is one of the most powerful goddesses, because she has both a good and an evil nature, just like vultures. Don't get on the bad side of Nekbet!
3. Which of these is usually shown with the head of a baboon, and is depicted on the canopic jar that contains the lungs of a mummified pharaoh?

Answer: Hapi

Hapi is the son of Horus, as are the other gods displayed on canopic jars. Hapi is the hyper-annoying god, but he is also helpful and is sometimes very loving. He is Horus' favorite son. He is also the firstborn son.

Hapi is also the name of a Nile god, usually shown as a blue or green human figure, who is associated with the annual flooding that made Egypt's soil fertile.
4. Who is the goddess of cats and beauty?

Answer: Bast(et)

All but Bast(et) are Scottish goddesses! Scattock is the goddess of war and the shadows. Efa is her twin sister. Scattock is "The Shadow", and Efa is "Efa of the Shadows". Zephaniah is supposedly their grandmother. She is the goddess that all mortals wish to be. Bast(et) is the object of worship for many humans and gods, including Bes, Set, Osiris, and Ra, but don't tell anyone I said that! :)
5. A little pharaoh stuff: What was the pharaoh also said to be?

Answer: A god

Ramesses the great was famous for being part god. He passed it on from generation to generations. Other rulers outside of Egypt were considered to be part god and part king, including Gilgamesh, Romulus, and Emperor Caligula. These leaders often used this divinity to justify tyrannical actions. Caligula, for example, ordered his cousin and brother executed! Even Gilgamesh said, "It is okay to hurt others to get to my goal. I am a god. I can do no wrong." Gods were seen as being very involved in daily life back then.
6. What was the job of Ammut the devourer?

Answer: To eat the hearts of the bad souls

A heart was weighed against the feather of truth. If the two did not balance, the heart was eaten by the part hippo, part lion, and part crocodile Ammut. The soul went to the gruesome fields of punishment. If they did balance, the soul went to live with Osiris. At different times, this was seen as being a fertile Land of Reeds or as accompanying Ra on his daily journey.
7. Anubis was made god of embalming for what reason?

Answer: He embalmed Osiris

Anubis was represented by the embalmer through the act of putting on a jackal mask. Many mortals respected Anubis for his calm, and sometimes dangerous, nature. He is dscribed as being the son of Set, Horus, Nephythis, and Isis. Anubis is represented as Osiris' son also. Nephythis dressed up like Isis, who was married to Osiris, but Nephythis was already married to Set, so Horus was Isis' husband/son. All five of them were parents to Anubis. Talk about godly parents!
8. What were the animals of Set?

Answer: Set animals

The Set animal was so vicious, no one took enough time to name it a creative name. It has red radar eyes and ears like a jackals. It is said that nothing could escape the set animal once they were in its sights. The Set animal accompanied Set to every battle, every discussion, and every journey. Set was the only one who could control this animal.

The Set animal could be used as a tracker, a pet (for Set only), a hunter, and a weapon. The Set animal was invincible and immortal. It could grow to more than 30 ft. high! The Set animal was by far the most dangerous creature in Egyptian mythology.
9. Babi is the god of what?

Answer: Bad baboons

Babi sides with Nekbet when there is war. He hates Thoth the god of good baboons. Babi is dumb, but strong and scary. The only way to beat him is to outsmart him. He is also nearly blind, which gives Egyptian heroes a positive run on it. Babi has never been recorded as good.

He also has a relationship with Neith, the goddess of hunting. His sense of hearing and smell is excellent! You don't want to meet Babi.
10. Thoth was the god of what?

Answer: Magic, dancing, writing, and knowledge

Thoth replaced one of Horus's eyes with one made of moonlight when Horus lost it in a battle between gods. Thoth is neutral in the godly battles that break out every year or so. Thoth helps both sides, even when they might have been mean to him in the past. Thoth is the Apollo of Egyptian myths.

He is the god of writing, knowledge, music, recreation, and spiced food. His two animals are the ibis and good baboon. Thoth is the one heroes go to for help.
