God Imhotep

God Imhotep
Imhotep was a high officer in the court of King Djoser (the third Dynasty)  who after  exaltation  becomes  the  embodiment  of  scribal  wisdom  and,  as  son  of Ptah,  of  superb  architectural  and  creative acquisition. Statue  fragments  attest  that  Imhotep was  given  the  extreme  privilege  of  his name  being  carved  aboard  that  of Djoser Netjerykhet himself. He took the offices  of  chief  executive  (vizier)  and master  sculptor    the  Egyptian  priest Manetho, who write in Greek a history of Egypt  in  the  third  century  BC,  credits Imouthes (i.e. Imhotep) with the design of  the  technique  of  building  with  cut stone. It is future he was the architect who planned  Egypts  first  big scale  stone memorial: the Step Pyramid at Saqqara. Afterwards  his  death  Imhotep is remembered in Middle and New Kingdom scribal reports as the author of a book of direction a well-experienced genre of Egyptian  literature although the one referable to Imhotep has not went. In the Late Period bronzes of Imhotep show him  seated in scribal strength with a papyrus-roll open crossways his knees. This fear for him leads to his apotheosis  an highly rare phenomenon in ancient Egypt (compare Amenhotep-Son-of-Hapu, Peteese and Pihor,  and  pharaoh sections  titled  Living  king deified through ritual and Dead king deified as royal ascendents). In the Ptolemaic period Imhotep as a god is discovered in cult centres and temples passim Egypt:

1- Objects  devoted  in  his  name  are discovered in northwest Saqqara.

2- Inside Thebes where he was precious in conjunction  with  Amenhotep-Son-of-Hapu he has a sanctuary on the Upper Terrace of the temple at Deir el-Bahari and is defended in the temple at Deir el-Medina.

3- Iside Philae there is a chapel of Imhotep instantly before the eastern pylon of the temple of goddess Isis (See Philae Temples).
