Horus from Nubia


Father of the Pharaohs

This God represented the concept of pharaohnicship. He was believed to be the father of all the pharaohs. A new pharaoh would often identify him/her self with Horus. His images appear on, almost, every temple in Sudan.

A translation of an offering table inscription from Semna, in Sudan, reads as follows:

"Life (to) the Horus divine of forms, he of the Two Ladies Divine of births, the Golden Horus who has come into being, Dual King Khakaura.."
(Translation from GEM)1
