Apis or "Hapis" (alternatively spelled Hapi-ankh) is a bull-deity in Egyptian mythology, which was mainly worshiped in the Memphis region of ancient Egypt.
Apis, as a deity, was worshiped since the beginnings of Egyptian history with a cult forming during that period.
As SerapisEditWhen Egypt was absorbed into Alexander the Great's Macedonian empire, he and his successor in Egypt, Ptolemy I, sought to integrate the local religion with that of their rulers. The Hellenistic Greeks had little respect for animal-headed gods, so Apis was combined with Osiris to make the deity Osiris-Apis, later becoming Serapis, which alse eventually became a Roman deity.
