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).

OMG HE IS MY FAVORITE OF THE EGYPTIAN PATHEON! Well, my favorite male deity, my favorite female is Anukis, Goddess of the Nile. You know what annoys me? When people say Anukis is Anubis' wife, just coz their names are similar. Anubis' wife is Anput.

Horus = god of life, the sky.
Ra = god of the sun, creation.

At one point, as mentioned in the description, there are instances of the two of them combining to form an entirely different god, Re-Horahkty, that appears to be a bit of both Ra and Horus. Silly Egyptians. :)

nah...not uncommen, e.g. in greek mythology the original sun-god was the titan helios, but later on appollo took on the role of the god of the sun.
