PTAH
Also known as PTHA

A picture showing the legend of PTAH taken from our Egyptian mythology archives. Illustration by Chas Saunders. Read the story below or search the index for more Egyptian Gods, Egyptian Goddesses, heroes, demons and monsters!

Creator God with a sideline in Masonry.

The son of NUN and NAUNET, he makes the Breath of Life. First you have to imagine — then you have to have a name for whoever, and then breathe out heavily Ptahh! (Or even Pthah!, but that sounds a bit spitty.) And there you have it: a new soul ready to take up residence.

Now a dignified older God, he is keen on stonework and crafts, and may have made his very own sandals; which do, we feel, detract slightly from his dignity. Also owns shares in SEKER's funeral parlor.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Ptah graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Ptah movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Ptah statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Ptah. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
