Thoth or Djehuti was the Egyptian god of the Moon when he was represented as a Cynocephalus Ape. In the guise of an Ibis, he was regarded as the god of Wisdom and magic that recorded the Weighing of the deceased's heart against the feather of Truth (Ma'at) to see if he was worthy to enter the Kingdom of Osiris, the Egyptian afterlife in the Egyptian Book of the Dead. The Ibis was seen as a wise bird, as the Greek's and Roman's would later use the Owl of the Goddess Athena as a symbol of wisdom. It was Thoth who saved mankind from the wrath and destruction of the Sun God Ra, when he sent his Eye, in the form of the Lioness Goddess Sekhmet (Literally the Powerful Woman) to destroy mankind. The God Thoth devised a plan to get the goddess drunk so she would forget her mission, so Thoth became associated with Wisdom and Scribes in a largely illiterate society.
