The Myths of Ancient Egypt

Foth is the Egyptian god of wisdom. I recently came across this wonderful retelling of the Egyptian myth, “The Book of Foth”, in which 2 royal personages go in search of Foth’s book. The book contains all the wisdom of the world and as one might expect the consequences for those who find and read Foth’s work are dire, (http://www.egyptianmyths.net/mythbookthoth.htm).

The site contains many other marvellous retellings of the myths of ancient Egypt, including “The Girl with the Rose-Red Slippers” which is, perhaps the earliest example of the “Cinderella” story, (http://www.egyptianmyths.net/mythslippers.htm).

For anyone interested in ancient Egypt or in mythology I recommend checking out this excellent site, (http://www.egyptianmyths.net/index.html).
