Horus

The falcon god Horus was regarded as the embodiment of devine kingship, and as early as the late fourth millennium BC, the pharaoh had a 'Horus name'. In Osirian mythology, Horas was in a long and arduous struggle with the evil god Seth to claim his rightful place as King of Egypt and avenge the murder of his father, Osiris. As a diety of the sky, Horus was associated with the sun and the moon, and seen as a god of the east and thus the sunshine. At his temple at Edfu in Upper Egypt, he was worshipped as part of a triad with his consort Hathor and their child Harsomtus.
