OriginEdit

The Book of Thoth is said to be written by Thoth The Egyptian God of Knowledge. It was said to be kept in the bottom of the Nile in a series of boxes each guarded by many serpents.

Thoth was considered one of the more important deities of the Egyptian pantheon. In art, he was often depicted as a man with the head of an ibis or a baboon, animals sacred to him. As in the main picture, Thoth is almost always shown holding a Was (a wand or rod symbolizing power) in one hand and an Ankh (the key of the Nile symbolizing life) in the other hand. His feminine counterpart was Seshat, and his wife was Ma'at.

Thoth's chief temple was located in the city of Khmun, ater called Hermopolis Magna during the Greco-Roman era (in reference to him through the Greeks' interpretation that he was the same as their god Hermes) and Ϣⲙⲟⲩⲛⲉⲓⲛ (Shmounein) in the Coptic rendering. In that city, he led the Ogdoad pantheon of eight principal deities. He also had numerous shrines within the cities of Abydos, Hesert, Urit, Per-Ab, Rekhui, Ta-ur, Sep, Hat, Pselket, Talmsis, Antcha-Mutet, Bah, Amen-heri-ab, and Ta-kens.

hoth played many vital and prominent roles in Egyptian mythology, such as maintaining the universe, and being one of the two deities (the other being Ma'at) who stood on either side of Ra's boat. In the later history of ancient Egypt, Thoth became heavily associated with the arbitration of godly disputes, the arts of magic, the system of writing, the development of science, and the judgment of the dead.

Warehouse 2Edit

It was collected in the first year of the newly created Warehouse 2 when the Warehouse was about to be moved. Seen to be too dangerous to be moved and sealed with the Warehouse, it remained undisturbed until the reactivation of Warehouse 2.

Warehouse 13Edit

The book was moved to Warehouse 13 soon after the reactivation and deactivation of Warehouse 2.
