Not sure if I should post this in mythology and religion, in Literature or even Miscelaneous Very Happy But this is an interesting find from Roman period Egypt

The deification apparently took place in Rome, but the event was mentioned in a poem written/copied in Egypt approximately 200 years later:

Quote:
A just-deciphered ancient Greek poem discovered in Egypt, deifies Poppaea Sabina, the wife of the infamous Roman emperor Nero, showing her ascending to the stars.


Another quote:
Quote:
In the poem, Poppaea ascends to heaven and becomes a goddess. The ancient goddess Aphrodite says to Poppaea, "my child, stop crying and hurry up: with all their heart Zeus' stars welcome you and establish you on the moon..."

Maybe
The Pop part of her name is for Apophis and the Sabina part of her name is refereing to Sphinx/Anubis (backwards).
name refers to the underworld.
Anubis as the Great Sphinx sits in front of the realm of Apophis.
Can't say more as I am writing a book on that subject.
