'And upon each of the body parts, they said that she kneaded a human form similar to Osiris made of perfumes and wax. Inviting the priests by groups obliged them under oath not to ever divulge the faith entrusted to them, privately saying to each one that to them solely she turned over the burial of the body, and reminding them of the benefactions, she entreated them to bury the body in their own districts and honor Osiris as a god; also, to consecrate one of their choice from the animals existed among them and, this to honor while alive as honored Osiris in the past, and after its death to perform a burial similar to his. Isis, wanting to induce the priests to profit in order to perform the defined honors, gave them one third of the country for the worship and service of the gods.' From Diodoros' of Sicily Library of History. Book 1:21(5-7).
