that reminds me:

In ancient Greece, the Greeks would not swear by their own gods because their gods were holy and they didn't believe in using their names casually. So they would swear by other people's gods. The ancient Egyptians worshipped a dog--anubis. So Socrates, during his Apologia--after he was sentenced to death said "by the dog!" in the context of his lengthy address.
