Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which of the following is the correct description of the Egyptian deity Aken?

Answer: Ferryman of the Underworld

Aken was Ferryman of the Underworld. In addition, he was subservient to Osiris and was even described as ruling at least some part of the Underworld for her. Generally, Osiris is considered ruler of the Underworld, so that would not describe Aken. He is not the god of judgment that is a completely different thing.

While he is the ferryman of the Underworld, he is not the god of life.
2. Which of the following is a correct description of the god Aker (also spelled Akar)?

Answer: God of the horizon

Aker is believed to have been one of the earliest Egyptian gods and was said to be the guard of the entrance and exit of the Underworld. The god of the disk of the sun would more accurately chracterize another god who was emphasized by Akenhaten. God of justice and truth describes Maat. As far as I know, there is no Egyptian god of basalt, marble, and limestone.
3. Which of the following is the correct description of the Egyptian entity Ammut (also spelled Ammit or Ahemait)?

Answer: Had a crocodile head, helped in carrying out of judgments on the dead

Ammut was the crocodile headed entity who helped in the carrying out of judgments on the dead. She was also known as the "Devourer of the Dead" and Ammit the Devourer. Interestingly, she was not viewed as a god. Instead, she was viewed as the embodiment of the Egyptian idea of the punishment of the soul. Ammut had a crocodile head, thus immediately eliminating the hippopotamus answers.

Shewas not the goddess of justice, order, truth, and law. That appears to be a combination of the gods Thoth and Maat.
4. Which of the following is the correct description of the Egyptian god Amun (also spelled Amen or Amon)?

Answer: Patron god of Thebes, who later became Amun-Ra

Amun was the patron god of Thebes, who was later merged with Ra to become Amun-Ra. He was not originally the patron god of Thebes, but acquired importance during their rebellion against the Hyskos. The fused god Amun-Ra would be worshiped outside of Egypt in the future. As the patron god of Thebes, the other answers are immediately eliminated.
5. Which of the following is the correct description of the Egyptian goddess Amunet (also spelled Amonet or Amaune)?

Answer: Primordial goddess of the concept of air

Amunet was a primordial goddess of the concept of air. She was a member of the Ogdoad, a group of eight deities worshiped in Hermopolis in the Old Kingdom, and was the consort of the god Amun. Amunet was the primordial goddess of the concept of air, so the other answers are eliminated. Essentially, they are the other elements of the Earth according to the ancient Greeks.
6. Which of the following is the correct description of the Egyptian god Anhur (also spelled Onuris, Onouris, An-Her, Anhuret, Han-Her, and Inhert)?

Answer: A war god

Anhur was a war god that was worshiped in certain parts of Ancient Egypt. He was patron of the army and was even seen as a personification of royal Ancient Egyptian warriors. Anhur was not a demon, while demons certainly did exist in ancient Egyptian myth.

There were multiple gods related to the sun, but Anhur was not one of them. Nymphs do not exist in Egyptian myth, they are Greek.
7. Which of the following is the correct description of the Egyptian goddess Anput?

Answer: Goddess of the seventeenth Nome of Upper Egypt

Anput is the goddess of the seventeenth Nome or district of Upper Egypt. She was also the goddess of the desert and protection. As the goddess of the seventeenth of Upper Egypt, she is not the same for Lower Egypt. There is not ancient Egyptian city of Nome, Nome refers to districts, it is not a place like say Thebes or Memphis.

There are multiple gods/goddesses of the Nile, but that does not describe Anput.
8. Which of the following is the correct description of the Egyptian god Anubis?

Answer: God of the dead, mourning, funerals, and embalming

Anubis was the god of the dead, mourning, funerals, and embalming. Anubis was one of the multiple deities in Ancient Egypt involved in some aspect of death. He was also a jackal god and determined the fate of one's soul after death, according to Egyptian belief.

While Anubis is a god related to death, he is not the god of death and dying specifically. He definitely is not the god of creation that describes a different Egyptian god. If anything, the god of the Underworld would more accurately characterize Osiris.
9. Which of the following is the correct description of the Egyptian goddess Anuket?

Answer: Goddess of the Nile river

Anuket was the "first" goddess of the Nile river who was believed to be the daughter of Khnum and Satis. There was no god of the sea in the terms of a god like Poseidon or Neptune from Greek and Roman myths respectively. Hapy was the god of inundation. Goddess of the Nile river and crocodiles would be a fusion of the gods/goddesses Anuket and Sobek. Goddess of fertility would more closely describe Isis, but she did have other functions beyond fertility.
10. Which of the following is the correct description of the Egyptian god Apophis?

Answer: Deification of darkness and chaos

Apophis, also known as Apepi and Aapep, was the deification of darkness and chaos. He was the opponent of Ma'at and there were some myths regarding his battles with the Egyptian Sun god Ra. Chaos and order are opposites of one another and Apophis was not a god of opposites. Ma'at tended to be considered the opposite of Apophis.

While he was the deification of darkness, he was not the deification of light. Again, those are opposites. The ancient Egyptian religion was not really concerned with the end of the world, unlike many other future religions.
