When will my order arrive?

Thoth, the ibis-headed god of wisdom, inventor of the art of writing; Osiris, the dead god who arose and set the pattern for death-and-resurrections gods ever since; Isis, the great mother, wandering through the reed swamps; Anubis, conductor of the dead, with jackal head; Bast, the cat goddess; Set, the evil serpent; Ptah, the living mummy...for more than 2500 years, since the day of Herodotus, students have found the gods of Ancient Egypt a source of fascination and wonder. Strange beings who lived in a world of their own (as opposed to the human gods of the European peoples), irrational powers and menaces, sometimes animal-like, sometimes superhuman, sometimes incalculable in their evil potentialties, they still have the power to move men's thoughts.
