Egyptian Gods
This in only a very small list of the deities in Egyptian Mythology. It was very common in Egypt (and in many other cultures) to combine gods to create new ones, reconcile deities from different areas, or to show different aspects of a major god. One example is when you combine Hathor with Isis you get Sekhmet, the goddess of war and destruction. As such, new gods were being created by simply combining aspects of the others.
