Bennu in Egyptian mythology, was the sacred bird of Osiris, probably a kind of lapwing. From its being supposed to accompany the soul through its journeys in the lower life, it was gradually accepted as its emblem, the emblem of its resurrection. It was further also a symbol of a period of time, the great cycle of 1265 years, which gave rise to the Grecian fable of the phoenix.
