The Gods of Ancient Egypt -- Minor Gods


Minor Gods of Egypt

They're called "minor," but after all, how minor can a god be? These are gods and goddesses that are less famous than the others, or perhaps were not worshipped as widely. There are a few demigods and deified mortals here as well.


Others are listed here because not much is known about them. Like other polytheistic religions, the pantheon of gods increased over time until there were literally hundreds of deities. Some of them are incredibly minor indeed, such as Dua, the god of toiletries. Other gods might have had large followings, but their cults passed after a few decades or centuries. Others, like Bes, never really had cults or temples, but were instead revered by nearly everyone.

Thus, as has been said before, it would be impossible to list every god worshipped in Egypt over the several thousand years of its history. These are the ones we could find, and the ones for which we could discover valid and complete information. However, if we've left out your favorites, tell us about them, and we'll be sure to add them in.
