The Egyptian worshipped triads of divinities.
The best known is shown here. It is composed of the god Osiris, sat on a pillar inscribed with the name Osorkon II.
The god is flanked by two figures: on his left,
his sister and wife, Isis, divine symbol of Motherhood; on his right, their son Horus.
The Egyptian pantheon patently displays the stamp of Babylonian heritage.
The relationship between Osiris and Isis
and their respective characteristics
correspond surprisingly with those
of the Babylonian divinities,
Tammuz and Ishtar AE50, AE51
