An evil beast-headed god with high square ears and a long snout; his was the brother and murderer of Osiris. Called also Set
Egyptian god associated with evil; brother and murderer of Osiris
Chief adversary and eventual murderer of his brother Osiris, Seth represented the sterility of the desert, chaos, and destruction of the cosmic order in Egyptian mythology. Seth maintained a fierce rivalry with the god Horus, son of Isis and Osiris, and was ultimately defeated a triumph of order over chaos. In one of their battles, Horus tore away Seth's leg, which was represented by the Big Dipper, believed by Egyptians to be a source of immortality because it never left the night sky. The power of this belief is evident in the mummification ritual of pressing a dipper-shaped object to the deceased's mouth and eyelids, restoring the spirit and reanimating the body for life in the afterworld.
