Imhotep was one of very few mortals depicted as part of a pharaoh's statue. He was one of only a few commoners ever to be accorded divine status after death. The center of his cult was Memphis.  Imhotep considered the first architect, engineer, and physician in early history though two other physicians, Hesy-Ra and Merit-Ptah lived around the same time. Imhotep was an important figure in Ancient Egyptian medicine. He was the author of a medical article remarkable for being devoid of magical thinking the Edwin Smith papyrus containing anatomical observations, ailments, and cures.
