Khonsu Gossip

Back to the future for ancient Egypt! The sci-fi TV series Stargate SG-1 featured a character named Khonsu.

Rock music likes to boogie down back in time. A progressive metal band got ancient by naming itself "Khonsu." 

Taking a note from Elvis, Khonsu appears in Rick Riordan's Kane Chronicles series decked out in a silver suit.

Khonsu wasn't just a moon god. He was also pretty buff, which might explain why the Greeks associated him with Heracles. (Source.)

Khonsu liked to get his ape on. Like several other Egyptian gods, he sometimes popped up in the form of a baboon. (Source.)
