This myth is about Osiris and his sister Isis how they helped fix Egypt from the Horrible time they were going threw. Isis discovered the grain of both wheat and barley, which grew wild over the land with the other plants and was still unknown to man. Then Osiris taught them how to plant the seeds when the Nile had risen in the yearly inundation and sunk again leaving fresh fertile mud over the fields. His evil brother Seth hated Osiris and and after Osiris returned from one of his journeys he had a big feast. Seth made a exact measurement of his body into a wooden chest and ask Osiris to fit inside, Seth nailed the chest together leaving his brother locked inside. Then he sent him to float away down the Nile river.
