  • Remarks
    This amulet depicts a striding hawk-headed male deity, wearing the double crown of kingship. A number of Egyptian gods are portrayed as hawk-headed humans, making it difficult to identify those without distinguishing crowns. However, when the god wears the double crown of Upper and Lower Egypt he is almost certainly Horus.
