In ancient Egypt, Horus or Heru, Har, Hor is one of the most important ancient Egyptian deities who served several roles, notably as the Egyptian god of kingship and the sky.
Horus perhaps shows as a falcon on the Narmer Palette, dating from about the 31st century BC. At Nekhen, the city of the falcon, Nekhney perhaps has been worshipped as falcon god.
The Pyramid texts define the nature of the pharaoh in distinct characters as both Osiris and Horus. The new incarnations of Horus succeeded the departed pharaoh on earth in the appearance of new pharaohs.
According to one tale, Horus is born to the goddess Isis after she regained all the dismembered parts of her murdered husband Osiris, except his penis.
According to early Egyptians, the Sun is Horus’s right eye, and the Moon is his left eye, and they pass through the sky when Horus flew across it.
Heb Nekhtet or the festival of victory was a yearly Egyptian festival for Horus. It took place at the Horus temple during the sixth month of the Egyptian calendar or the Season of the Emergence.
