The Honor of Ancient Kings
Someone made this hieroglyphic photocopy of me in my hawk form on King Djet's tombstone. I am the god of his house. [Tomb of Djet, First Dynasty (ca. 3500BCE)]


Hanging out with the Crocodile God
This was from that summer weekend I was at Kom Ombo with Sobek, the crocodile god. We had a great time sitting on the beach with all his children, and hanging out with the kings. The temple there is dedicated to both of us, and it's the only double temple in all of Egypt. Once, it was dedicated to Seth and me instead, but after Seth killed Osiris, nobody wanted him around anymore. [Kom Ombo Temple, Egypt (ca. 180 BCE), Photo 2008, IJAnderson977]


Inside the Temple
How do I look? [Kom Ombo Temple, Egypt (ca. 180 BCE). Photo 2007, Rowan.]
