I have finally finished all the posts related to snakes and snake beings in Egyptian myth. I feel this is as comprehensive as I can be but I am sure there are probably some I have missed. I have also omitted a lot of the extra spellings and extra names for each snake. Instead of listing names I listed the one most commonly used or referred to in books. The snakes are in three sections.. those against creation, those in the service of Ma'at and those associated with the Duat/afterworld.

You will find that most snakes are positive or neutral in nature. However, it is often thought that snakes are a negative in Egypt because the major evil in mythology.

Without further ado... I am going to start posting about the snakes.
