Group Description

Thoth-Scribe is a discussion group for any individual interested in ancient Egypt, whether a curious beginner or a professional. Topics include all historical periods from the Predynastic to the Roman periods. Any subject is open for discussion, including the history, religion, art, architecture, literature, technologies, and industries of ancient Egypt. Membership is open to anyone who is interested.

The Egyptian god Thoth was often shown holding a writing kit of palette, inks, and reed pens. He seems appropriate for a discussion forum where writing is our main avenue for communication across the miles that separate us. Thoth was the Lord of Hermopolis and for later generations considered Thrice Greatest. Even the roots of Hermeticism are to be found in ancient Egypt according to Egyptologists Erik Iversen, Jan Assmann, and Geraldine Pinch.

The Instruction of Ankhsheshonk (6,7): Examine every matter, that you may understand it.
