From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Here's a drawing of me being born, on the first day, out of the very first lotus flower. Some archaeologist mistook me for Horus the Younger, though. Not surprised. Sometimes, people think that there aren't any other child gods in Egypt! [Drawing of Nefertem-Ra labeled "Harsomtus" (Ptolemaic Period, ca. 300BCE)] Public domain.
