Imhotep was the first of his kind. There are more statues and figurines of Imhotep in museums all over the world than the Pharaohs themselves. He is probably the only figure in African history to rival name of the Pharaohs as they all had to pay tribute to him during their lifetimes. His name was even talked about by the Greeks and Romans as they attempted to modernize the prestige of their culture with monumental architecture. It's safe to say that Imhotep, as an individual, had a major impact on the modern world. This can be seen in the way cities are built with brick construction that many today take for granted. Thoth, using the principle of the moon, invented hieroglyphs, the picture writing of Ancient Egypt. He was the measurer of the earth and the counter of the stars, the keeper and recorder of all knowledge. The ibis (Habu) is a bird rather like a stork, with long legs and a long beak which it uses for prodding in the mud to find small fish. It was a symbol of wisdom and learning because it has a beak shaped like a crescent pen which it dips in the mud, as if it was ink.
