Ephesus Shore Excursions

Ephesus Shore Excursions Her origins are uncertain but are believed to have come from the Nile Delta; however, unlike other Egyptian deities, she did not have a centralized cult at any point throughout her worship. First mentions of Isis date back to the Fifth dynasty of Egypt which is when the first literary inscriptions are found, but her cult became prominent late in Egyptian history, when it began to absorb the cults of many other goddesses. It eventually spread outside Egypt throughout the Middle East and the Roman Empire, with temples dedicated to her built as far away as the British Isles. Worshipping of her remained in Christian Europe as late as the 6th century. Ephesus Shore Excursions

Today the name Isis is still a beloved name among modern Coptic Egyptians, and in Europe the name Isadora is very common. Ephesus Shore Excursions
