Thoth is the "Lord of Divine Words." He is the scribe of the gods, and was considered the inventor of the alphabet and writing (in the form of hieroglyphs). Both the Egyptians and the Greeks considered him the patron god of science, mathematics, religion, philosophy, and magic. He acts as an arbitrator between the gods when there are conflicts, particularly between good and evil. In such a case, he tries to maintain the balance between the two sides rather than having one triumph over the other. Thoth is typically depicted as a man with the head of an ibis, or as an ibis bird, or a baboon, which are his scared animals. He is often associated with the moon, as the crescent moon resembled the curved beak of the ibis.
