American gods

And he answered and said, Babylon is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her gods he hath broken unto the ground.

Columbia/Liberty/Freedom

Columbia, a personification of the United States (much like Britannia for the UK and Marianne for France), is a face of a demon, as are female representations of Liberty and Freedom.  Columbia is the feminine personification of America, who first appears in the poetry of African-American Phillis Wheatley in 1776 in a letter to George Washington during the revolutionary war. Throughout the Revolution, the image of Columbia was used all over the new America: cities were named for her, songs were sung about her, and her image can be seen throughout the architecture and art of the period. 

Until 1932, the United States had a Goddess depicted on nearly every coin minted; the Goddess of Liberty. She was the focus of the Morgan Dollar, the Peace Dollar, the Seated Liberty dollar…the dime that people refer to as a “Mercury Dime,” was actually a “Goddess of Free Thought,” designed by Mint designer Adolf Weinman.

Osiris (Asir) was the first son of Geb and Nut and the brother of SetHorus (the elder)Isis and NephthysOsiris was considered to be the king of the underworld, and is the only deity who is referred to simply as “god”.
