There is a story about it below.

Osiris had been killed by his brother Set, who wanted to takeover Osiris’s kingdom. Isis joined the pieces of Osiris together, but there was a piece missing!

The part missing was the phallus. Isis got a golden phallus, and brought Osiris back to life for a little while by using a spell.

She became pregnant just before Osiris died once again. Isis gave birth to Horus. Horus became known as the vanquisher of Set. Set and Horus were arch enemies.
