Sobek And Horus This obelisk, standing near the entrance to the Kom Ombo Temple has illustrations of the two gods to which the temple is dedicated - Sobek, above; Horus, below. Sobek was a cult god in this area of Egypt, and it seems likely that this temple was erected here as nearby sand-banks were a favourite basking ground for crocodiles.

The Greek Hermes found his analogue in Egypt as the ancient Wisdom God Thoth (sometimes spelled Thouth or Tahuti). This god was worshiped in his principal cult location, Chmun, known also as the "City of the Eight," called Greek Hermopolis. There is evidence that this location was a center for the worship of this deity at least as early as 3000 B.C HERMES/THOTH AND HERMETICISM throughout the Ages

Horus symbol. Horus was the son of the Great Goddess, Isis, conceived by his virgin mother after the death of her brother/husband Osiris. (She brought him back to life, and he ruled over the Underworld from then on.) Horus was considered the savior of mankind by the Egyptians, who interceded for them with the gods and Goddess.

The ankh, also known as key of life, was the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic character that read “eternal life”. Egyptian gods are often portrayed carrying it by its loop, or bearing one in each hand, arms crossed over their chest.
