The Battle of Horus and Set
The rest of Osiris’ story focuses on his son Horus, magically conceived after Isis embalmed Osiris’ body. While Osiris was dead, Set ruled Egypt until Horus challenged him. The battle involved appealing to various other deities, various contests, shape-shifting and even sexual encounters between the two. The conflict was never resolved, however, and the story sets the tone for the duality, prominent in the Egyptian mythology.
