Redirected from Geb

In Egyptian mythology, Seb is a son of Shu and Tefnut and a god of fertility and the Earth. The Egyptians were unusual in this regard; in other mythologies, the Earth is usually represented by a goddess. Seb is one of the Ennead. He was associated with the goose and the colors green or black (also his skin color). Seb imprisoned the dead souls of evil men and women, keeping them from entering Heaven.

With Nuit, he was the father of Osiris, Horus, Seth and Nepththys. With Renenutet, he was the father of Nehebkau.
