Late Bronze Age clay cobra figurines have been found in settlement and military sites in Egypt, Israel and Lebanon. They were used as conduits of prayer to the fiery cobra goddesses, and as apotropaic devices to protect against demons. They are part of the Demonology 2K project directed by Kasia Szpakowska.

Your thoughts here
  1. Beings that inhabit watery areas, ponds, and puddles do appear in the Ancient Egyptian Oracular Amuletic Decrees (dating to the Late New Kingdom, around 1000 BC). Amongst other things that the gods promise to protect the person who wears the amulet from (usually they are worn by children) from are beings called “werets” (great ones), who can be found in canals, wells, rivers, and pools left by the inundation. The main source for these is Edwards, I. E. S. Oracular Amuletic Decrees. Hieratic Papyri in the British Museum. Vol. 4th Series, II volumes, London: Trustees of the British Museum, 1960.

  2. Anyone have any understanding of something like a Bog spirit or Bog demon?
    Something like this came up during Imbas Forosnai, it is a creature which has taken control of my sister in law and is causing her to harm to her family.
