Thoth, Egyptian god of Knowledge

Thoth was one of the deities of the Egyptian pantheon. He was often depicted as a man with the head of an ibis or a baboon. He is credited with making the calculations for the establishment of the heavens, stars, Earth, and everything in them.
The Egyptians also credited him as the author of all works of science, religion, philosophy, magic and the 365 days calender. He also served as a mediating power, making sure two conflicting deities never had a decisive victory over the other in battle. Busy guy.

But most importantly, and as most Egyptian gods, he was also very cool looking smile
