    The primary god was the sun god Ra known as Kepher at dawn and Amun at sunset.
    Each major nome or province had its own major god
    Abydos …… Osiris
    Assuit ……… Wepawawet
    Busbastis….. Bastet
    Coptus……… Min
    Crocodopolis.. Sobek
    Dendara……. Hathor
    Edfu…………. Horus
    Elephantine….. Khnum
    El Kad………….. Nekhabet
    Heliopolis……… Ra
    Heracleopolis. Harsaphas or Horus the child
    Hermopolis….. Thoth and the Ogdoad
    Heirakonopolis Horus
    Leontopolis…… Akeru the lion
    Letopolis ………..Horus
    Memphis…………Ptah
    Ombos……… Set
    Sais……… Neith
    Tanis……. Set
    Thebes…. Amun
    Thinis….. Anhur
    In addition most of these gods were known by many different names according to which aspect they were presenting or being called upon. The gentle loving protective goddess Bastet could also become the blood lusting,raging goddess of chaos Sekmet.
    Isis as a primary goddess did not really come into great importance other than being the wife of Osiris and mother of Horus until very late in the dynastic era . She was the sister of Hathor and often shared the same role.
    The Egyptian creation gods were
    Atum
    Shu______Tefnut
    air l moisture
    Geb _______ l_______Nut
    earth l sky
    Osiris_______Isis_______Set________Nepthys or Hathor I Isis paralled

    The Gods and goddesses of ancient Egypt are a fascinating study and there are over 2,000 differing names . This is a great website for giving you an insight into the morphology of the gods and goddesses.
