The Egyptian gods have long been the subject of numerous books and even greater legends. They are perhaps some of the oldest and best-documented gods known to modern man with treatises dating back five millennia or more. The Egyptian lands overflow with all manner of lore and superstition regarding the favor and wrath of the gods. These superstitions contribute to the popular
themes about undead (such as the mummy), deadly curses inflicted on those who dare disturb the rest of a pharaoh, and rumors of undiscovered riches deep in the bowels of the ancient pyramids. The mythos of Egypt remains strong and vibrant today, given the recent string of successful Hollywood movies incorporating its themes.
