Maybe this guy hangs around the temple of Djehuti (Thoth), the god whom the Egyptians would sometimes associate with primates (though he is best known for his sacred ibis head).

I shouldn't have to add the disclaimer that gorillas were never native to Egypt since they are creatures of the rainforest. However, when I was a kid, I thought ancient Egypt was cool because of all the exotic African animals they coexisted with and even incorporated into their religion, and I probably wouldn't have thought a gorilla out of place there at all.
