H for Horus by tohdaryl H for Horus by tohdaryl
Horus is one of the oldest and most significant deities in ancient Egyptian religion, who was worshipped from at least the late Predynastic period through to Greco-Roman times. Different forms of Horus are recorded in history, and these are treated as distinct gods by Egyptologists. These various forms may possibly be different perceptions of the same multi-layered deity in which certain attributes or syncretic relationships are emphasized, not necessarily in opposition but complementary to one another, consistent with how the Ancient Egyptians viewed the multiple facets of reality.He was most often depicted as a falcon, most likely a lanner or peregrine, or as a man with a falcon head.

Yep. In fact, the egyptians were converted to Christianism easily because they saw in Christ the incarnation of Horus, who will fight against Seth (now converted into a diabolic entity, Satan).
