Osiris, an Egyptian god, the embodiment of good, as his brother, Set, was that of evil. Some considered him as the son, others as the husband and brother, of Isis and father of Horus. He is said to have conquered Egypt and to have founded a good system of laws, but to have fallen at last through the machinations of Set. He is also represented as judge of the dead, and his figure is accompanied by many symbols.
