Father of the Pharaohs
This God represented the concept of pharaohnicship. He was
believed to be the father of all the pharaohs. A new pharaoh
would often identify him/her self with Horus. His images appear
on, almost, every temple in Sudan.
A translation of an offering table inscription from Semna,
in Sudan, reads as follows:
"Life (to) the Horus divine of forms, he of the
Two Ladies Divine of births, the Golden Horus who has come
into being, Dual King Khakaura.."
