Osiris Husband of Isis, brother of Seth and son of Geb and Nut. He was the original sacrificial god of Egypt. He twice suffered death at the hands of his brother - once drowning and one by dismemberment. Ensnared in a tamarisk tree he was lost and found by Isis, only to be lost again. Morned by his sisters he was resurrected into the next world.
The Osiris cult symbolised stability and strength. His hieroglyphic sign was the throne surmounted by the eye.
Hymn to Osiris
Turn your face gentle upon us, Osiris
Lord of life eternal, king of the gods
unnumbered the names of this protean nature
hols is manifold visible forms
hidden his rites in the temples
God who remembers still down in the halls where men must speak true,
