Mehen is an ancient Egyptian game, references to which have been found already in the predynastic period, before 3100 BCE. The game is a spiral in the shape of a coiled snake with the snake's head in the center of the disk. The name Mehen, can refer to the spiral form of the game or its representation of the Egyptian snake-god Mehen.   #EgyptianGames #Mehen
