Thoth, (Djehuty), the god who is said to have invented writing, the measuring of time, music, magic, art, medicine, mathematics and astronomy. In early times shown as an ibis, the sign of the 15th Lower Egyptian nome, so he might have originated there. His main cult center was later Hermopolis in Middle Egypt, where he assumed the shape of a baboon. He took over the role of the eight creator gods of Hermopolis and became a creator god himself.
He was considered the lord of the moon and in the late period he was called the "silver Aten". Another name was "lord of time" and "reckoner of years", his attributes being a writing palette or a palm leaf. He was the protector of scribes and was sometimes considered the tongue or heart of Re. He was also the protector of Osiris and as such he became the helper of the dead.
