You may not be aware that Egyptian tradition had its own ‘golden box’.
Quote

He was the third divine Pharaoh to take over the throne as King of the Earth, but – just like all of the other times- his reign was disturbed. One legend speaks of the golden box that contained Ra’s Uraeus (serpent surmounting Ra’s head) being opened in the presence of Geb and his followers. Ra had put the box in Geb’s path, along with his cane and a lock of his hair.
These were placed in his fortress on the eastern-most point of his empire as a potent talisman. When the box was opened, the breath of the divine asp killed all of Geb’s followers on the spot and burned Geb’s entire body. The only thing that could heal Geb was to lay the lock of Ra’s hair over his wounds. This lock of hair was so powerful that, after Geb used it to heal himself; he plunged it into the lake of At Nub where it instantly turned into a crocodile.

And now Nefer-ka-ptah was face to face with the snake that no man could kill, and it reared itself up ready for battle. Nefer-ka-ptah rushed upon it and cut off its head, and at once the head and body came together, each to each, and the snake that no man could kill was alive again, and ready for the fray. Again Nefer-ka-ptah rushed upon it, and so hard did he strike that the head was flung far from the body, but at once the head and body came together again, each to each, and again the snake that no man could kill was alive and ready to fight. Then Nefer-ka-ptah saw that the snake was immortal and could not be slain but must be overcome by subtle means. Again he rushed upon it and cut it in two, and very quickly he put sand on each part, so that when the head and body came together there was sand between them and they could not join, and the snake that no man could kill lay helpless before him.
Then Nefer-ka-ptah went to the great box where...




"The concept of the dragon in Celtic mythology emerged directly from the holy crocodile (the Messeh) of the ancient Egyptians. The Pharaohs were anointed with crocodile fat, and thereby attained the fortitude of the Messeh (Thus Messiah—Anointed One). The image of the intrepidMesseh evolved to become the Dragon, which in turn became emblematic of mighty kingship."
