  1. Thrice Greatest: Thoth Hermes By Philip Gardiner
    Thoth Hermes – otherwise known as Djehuti, Tehuti or Tautuus – was sometimes depicted with a dog’s head and the body of a baboon, or alternatively a human figure with the head of an Ibis (see Figures 1 and 2.)

For starters, he had knocked on Durack's door in the dead of night while wearing a balaclava. Then he had identified himself -…
