Tehuti (Djeheuty, Thoth) is the Ancient Egyptian deity of wisdom and knowledge, hence an appropriate patron for this enterprise. He is often portrayed with the head of an ibis, or in the form of a baboon. In the Egyptian stories of the gods, Tehuti often plays the part of diplomat or reconciler.
His cult centre, Khemenu (Hermopolis), had its own cosmogeny, in which Tehuti brought forth the cosmos through the power of his voice. Tehuti was therefore also the god of magic, because, for the Egyptians, magic required the magician to be "true of voice".
The Greeks equated him with Hermes, who sometimes had the epithet Trismegistus (thrice great)..
