Often imitated but never duplicated, Horus the Elder was Big Bird long before Sesame Street. But instead of a tall yellow bird with an invisible buddy, he was a giant hawk as big as the entire sky, with the sun and moon for eyes. When the sun and moon were given to other gods who came along, Horus was made second son of the sun-god, Ra. Horus's brother and sister, Osiris and Isis, named their son Horus the Younger after him, and a bunch of other protector gods started calling themselves Horus, too. Apparently lots of gods in Egypt wanted to be the hawk-headed tough guy who kicks evil's butt and keeps everything in order.
