The Petit Dictionnaire des dieux égyptiens is a charming and invaluable little guide to the Egyptian gods, from ancient times to the Greco-Roman empire. There is an entry for every known god, along with a description of their place in the Egyptian cosmology, their most important attributes and multiple manifestations, incarnations, spheres of influence, and predominant devotees. In the introduction Alain Blottière provides a fascinating and concise overview of the place of religion in Ancient Egypt.
