Montu Spotter's Guide

Spotter's Guide

Sometimes, it's hard to tell the difference between Montu and other warrior gods with falcon heads, like Horus the Younger and Horus the Elder. Montu also often looks like Ra, and appears in the same places. But you can usually pick him out by his hat, or if you get him angry enough, he'll change into a bull, thereby dispelling all doubt, and possibly your innards as well.
