  Egypt: Hapi, God of the Nile, Fertility, the North and South
The depiction of Hapi himself, though, was that of a rather well-fed, blue or green man with the false beard of the pharaoh on his chin.
Hapi was also both god of Upper and Lower Egypt - this duality was shown by having twin Hapi deities, one wearing the papyrus of the north (Upper Egypt) as a headdress, the other wearing the south's (Lower Egypt) lotus as a headdress.
Hapi was thought to come with the inundation (the 'Arrival of Hapi') with a retinue of crocodile gods and frog goddesses, and the sacrifices were given in the hopes that the flood would not be too high, nor too low.

After reading the tidbit on Hapi, I thought the most appropriate sacrifice was jewelry rather than livestock, gold or other items.
Hapi was everyone's god, and to require some peasant to pay homage with jewery, gold or wine, which they probably didn't have, just isn't right.
Interestingly Hapi is also one of Horus four sons (the ones from the conopic jars).

 Installing and Running HAPI   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
HAPI is written in Java, so you must have a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) installed on your system.
For example, on Windows, assuming that you unzip HAPI into c:\hapi, you would open control panel -> system, select the "advanced" tab, select "environment variables", and create a new system variable with the name "HAPI_HOME" and the value "c:\hapi".
If it does not, make sure you have spelled everything correctly, and that testpanel.bat and hapi_0.4.jar are in the same directory as that from which you enter the command.

Hapi Skratch is considerably more than a Colorado based indie label.
Under the guidance of Morris Beegle, a Rocky Mountain musical renaissance man, Hapi Skratch records, publishes, distributes, recruits, and books an eclectic mix of musicians whose only common ground seems to be excellence.
Beegle, an excellent guitarist in his own right, is intimately involved in virtually every phase of development for the artists he brings into the Hapi Skratch family, and the world of independent music is much richer for his efforts.
