Egyptian Gods listed in alphabetical order

Egyptian God Possible Greek/Roman Equivalent(s) Other
Anubis
  • Since Anubis is the god of the dead, his Greek equivalent would be Hades. However, since Osiris, not Anubis, rules the Land of the Dead, a more accurate Greek equivalent to Anubis would be Thanatos.
  • In Ancient Rome, Anubis was combined with Hermes (since both play a part in leading the souls of the dead) and this combined deity was called Hermanubis
Apophis
  • His Greek equivalent is Typhon, the Father of All Monsters.
  • His Norse equivalent might be Jormungandr the Midgard Serpent. Apophis is said to encircle the world, much like Jormungandr, the Midgard Serpent of Norse Mythology; he is also an immensely powerful force of evil and Chaos.
Bast
  • Bast is identified as Artemis by the Greeks.
  • She was also named "Ailuros" by the Greeks.
Geb
Hathor
  • In some Greek myths, rather than Io becoming Isis, some stories state that when Hera chased Io with a swarm of wasps and hornets she fled to Egypt and became Hathor, since Hathor is often associated with a cow.
Heket
  • Her Greek equivalent is Eileithyia, goddess of childbirth and midwifery.
Horus
  • Ares is Horus' Greek equivalent, although Horus is more disciplined and less aggressive.
  • He is more similar to Mars, the Roman god of war and discipline, and both are referred to as 'The Avenger.'
Isis
  • Some historians and philosophers link Isis to the Greek consort of Zeus; Io. Some stories stating that when Hera chased Io with a swarm of wasps and hornets she fled to Egypt and became Isis. However, other stories have her become Hathor, instead.
  • Isis's Greek equivalent is Hecate, Hera, and Athena
  • Isis's Roman equivalent is Trivia (Hecate, however, claims to be exactly the same as Trivia), Juno, and Minerva
Khonsu
  • His Greek equivalent would be Selene or Artemis, as both are goddesses of the moon. His Roman equivalent would be Diana or Luna also for this reason.
  • His Greek equivalent could also be Kronos as they both control time.
Ma'at
  • Ma'at (sometimes portrayed as a Goddess) is the equivalent of the Greek goddess Themis.
Neith
  • Athena is the Greek equivalent as they are both goddesses of wisdom, battle and weaving.
Nut
  • Nut is the equivalent of the Greek god Ouranos, who like Nut, is forced to be separated from their love, in Ouranos' case it is Gaea. While Nut and Geb are separated by her father as punishment for bringing in five new gods, Gaea and Ouranos were separated by Atlas who is one of their grandsons, since their love would crush the earth.
Osiris
  • The Greek equivalents of Osiris are Hades and Dionysus.
  • The Roman equivalents of Osiris are Pluto and Bacchus.
Ptah
Ra
  • Ra's Greek equivalent is Apollo (though it was initially Helios).
  • Ra's Roman equivalent is also Apollo (though it was initially Sol).
Set
  • Some associated him with Hades since both are usually associated with Evil, but Hades, as lord of the Underworld, would be better associated with Osiris.
Shu
  • Shu is sometimes said to be an equivalent of the air god Aeolus in Greek mythology.
  • He is also associated with the Greek monster Typhon, but most people say that Typhon's equivalent is Apophis, god of true chaos.
Sobek
  • Sobek's Greek/Roman equivalents are Poseidon/Neptune, although his personality and stature matches Ares instead.
Thoth
  • Thoth was compared by the Greeks to Hermes, despite, as Thoth mentioned in The Red Pyramid, being nothing like Hermes
