Osiris

Egyptian - The supreme god, god of dead, floods, harvest, sun, the underworld, vegetation. Son of Geb and Nut or Ra and Nut. Brother of Isis, Nepthys, Seth. He married his sister Isis and when his father abdicated and split the kingdom between Osiris and Set, they ruled the northern half. Set wanted all the kingdom and he put Osiris in a chest and threw it into the Nile. In one version, the chest landed in Phoenicia (or Byblos) where a tree (Erica) grew round it. The tree was felled to make a column for the new palace of the king, Malcandie, who restored the chest to Isis. She retrieved the body and, mourning in the form of a bird, conceived and bore a son, Horus. Set again got hold of the body and cut it into fourteen (or up to forty-two) pieces which he threw into the river. Again Isis rescued the pieces, reassembled them and brought Osiris back to life but he went down to rule in the underworld, as Khenti-Amentiu, leaving the throne to Horus. In another version, she conceived Horus after Osiris had been reassembled from the pieces and, in yet another, Isis buried the pieces (except the penis which had been thrown to the crocodiles or carp), at various sanctuaries. His symbols were the flail and the crook and he is depicted swathed like a mummy holding these implements. The pharaoh of the united kingdom was Osiris after his death.
