Thoth was an Egyptian deity widely associated with the arbitration of godly disputes, the arts of magic, the system of writing, the development of science, and the judgment of the dead.[1] He is described as having the head of a green ibis, and as such, is symbolized by one.[2]

Thoth had a temple in Hermopolis dedicated to him until the mid-1st century BCE, when he was replaced by Hermes Trismegistus as the patron god of the city.[3]

In around 38 BCE, Bayek, while exploring Aten helped an old man, Khui, preserve his fading memory of the Old Divine ones by searching for statuettes of three old gods, Thoth being one of them, Bayek later gave the man the statuettes.[4]
