Earth Mythological References

Apophis was the chief antagonist of the sun-god, Ra. Considered to be the personification of darkness, evil and chaos, he battled against the light of Ra. Occasionally Apophis would prevail (resulting in a solar eclipse), but eventually Ra triumphed, slaying Apophis, dismembering his body and burning it. He was depicted in Greek and Egyptian mythology as a serpent god who lived in the depths of the celestial Nile. He is sometimes associated with Seth, god of chaos. He was never worshipped.
