901 -  O-Nile                                          

In Egyptian minds the Nile River was the creator of all that was good. 

"When the Nile River flooded, offerings were made to thee, birds were fattened for thee, and fish were offered to thee."

"So it is, O-Nile, art thou the waters who allowed man to live."
