Thoth was the famous god of wisdom, learning, writing, wit, fantasy, speaking and inventions, and as a baboon he recorded and checked (or "adjusted") the result at the "Balance of Truth" at the Court of Osiris. He wore the head of an ibis-stork and carried his writing tools,
was associated with the moon (upon his head), protected physicians and also had knowledge of magic. He par- ticipated in the famous Myth of Osiris and was called "the Silent Being", an irony to his protection of spoken words. His festival "Lord of Heavens" was held at the New Year (c. July 20). In the capital Khemenu (Hermopolis) of province 15 of Upper Egypt, he was considered to be the creator of the World.
