It is my understanding that the period between Osiris' death and resurrection varies, depending on the myth. For example, as "the Osiris"/deceased in the Egyptian funerary texts, as well as the nightly sun, he dies and is resurrected on a daily basis.

The annual death-and-resurrection period, however, is commonly depicted as three days. One such citation is Reverend Dr. Alfred Bertholet, a theologian and professor at the University of Göttingen. In an article entitled “The Pre-Christian Belief in the Resurrection of the Body”, published in 1916 in The American Journal of Theology by the University of Chicago Press, Dr. Bertholet remarks: "Osiris was three days and three nights in the waters before he was restored to life again." Being ‘restored to life’ after one's death is resurrection, in my humble opinion!
