Ptah was the main god of Memphis, the capital of Egypt for much of its history. He was the god of artists, craftsmen and masons. The name of his temple in Egyptian was Hwt-ka-Ptah, which the Greeks took as the name of the country - Hikuptah became Aiguptos, or Egypt, which is what we call it today.
