Of bright blue-glazed faience, the ibis-headed god shown standing on an integral plinth with back pillar, hands fisted as his sides and wearing a short pleated kilt and lunar headdress.

Thoth invented the arts and sciences, music, and magic, and was the god of learning, but above all, he was famed for being the creator of hieroglyphs, and was known as “the lord of holy words”. As the god who invented writing, he was the protector of scribes. Thoth was occasionally described as the tongue or heart of Ra. As the god of magic, he was called “the elder”.
