In the lists
which follow, we have attempted to name all the major gods and goddesses
of the Egyptian pantheon from the Archaic period right up to the Roman
period. We have included many of the less well-known deities with only
the very briefest of overviews. As the role of the gods regularly changed,
as they were assimilated by others, our overview is only intended as a
very rough guide and is by no means definitive.
We have also included a number of Canaanite, West Semetic, and Asian
deities, as well as some Greek and Roman ones where they are relevant
to Egyptian history and mythology.
