God of the Afterlife
Osiris was known as the King of the Dead or the Underworld (the place where a dead person's soul would go to be judged). He is also known as the God of Eternal Life. He is often shown as a man who has been mummified, wearing a white cone-shaped headdress with feathers.
The ancient Egyptians believed that a person's soul would have to pass a series of tests in the underworld before they were allowed to enter the afterlife where they would live forever.
Osiris was murdered by his brother, Set, and brought back to life by his wife, Isis. He ruled in the next world, and gave eternal life to those who deserved it. Another gift he gave was barley, which was one of their most important crops.
