Lovecraft circle SealThe Star Xoth (referred to as "Zoth" in the Clark Ashton Smith stories) is a star referred to in the Cthulhu Mythos. It is famous because many deities were born there.

Gods Edit

Idh-yaa, the couple of Cthulhu, lives in Xoth, and it was precisely there that she gave birth to her four children: Ghatanothoa, Zoth-Ommog, Ythogtha and Cthylla.

Other native Xoth gods are Ycnágnnisssz and his daughter Zstylzhemgni, mother of Tsathoggua.

Theories Edit

Many believe that Xoth could be a name given to the star Sirius, since the Egyptian name for it is "Sothis", a word with a sound similar to that given in the Myths. Interestingly, many gods of the Egyptians or Dogon came from the star of Sirius.
