Hi! *waves* I just found your LJ through the gracious mention of an online forum board member that I am also a member of. I have friended you, because it does indeed seem you are a fountain of information! I love that - especially when it comes to the Ancient Egyptian deities, who I also share fascination with (believe in.)

Uhm, I realize I'm new, and we don't know each other... Still, if I may throw out two questions: 1) Who are featured in your user icon? It looks like a lion(ness?) headed deity and a ???(bull)??? headed deity. And, 2) Do you know anything about the Ancient Egyptian (or Lybian) God Ash? His connections with Set? Possible similarities to the Ancient Iranian deity/demon Aesma Daeva (in Jewish mythology, known as Asmodeus)?

I hope I didn't kill you there. 0:) Nice to meet you! I hope we can become real friends. ~ Seta

Hiya and welcome!

My icon's a close-up of a Mesopotamian relief, "Lioness Attacking a Nubian", which was looted from the Baghdad Museum and as of February this year is still missing.

Complete Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt has a short entry on Ash (p 98) - I don't know if it'll add much to what you already know. Briefly, he was around from at least the Early Dynastic Period, had no established cult, and was the god of the western desert, hence his association with Set; also, "... Ash appears to have been the original deity of Ombos... the Upper Egyptian town which also became a cult centre of Seth". He can be depicted as a man, as a falcon-headed man, or as a man with the head of the Set-animal.

Hope that's useful!

The Companion the Doctor never Talks About

Here through DrHoz, who mentioned our shared interest in Egyptology (Although I'm more into it due to the fascinating insects of the region (I'm an Entomologist) and a long-standing fondness for DOCTOR WHO AND THE PYRAMIDS OF MARS. ("Sutehk brings the gift of darkness to all who live")

a few questions:

1] ever been to Egypt? I must get there one day- and resist the temptation to go up and pat a Fat-Tailed Scorpion (Androctonus australis)

2] Do you have an opinion as to the identity of the Set/Sutehk animal?!

Did drhoz show you that thing on praying mantises I sent him?

I've never been to Egypt - I'd love to, but it all sounds rather terrifying. Where I really want to go is Babylon. Even more terrifying!

I reckon the set-animal is a deliberately fantastical composite beast - it'd suit a god of chaos and foreign lands.
