Horus is the son of Isis and Osiris. He was depicted as a hawk or as a man with a falcon head and wearing the double crown of Egypt on the head. Horus is one of the most ancient Egyptian deities. He was already worshiped in predynastic times and is part of the myth of Osiris: Seth killed Osiris to usurp his throne. He tore his body and distributed it in the corners of Egypt. sis, wife of Osiris, search and recover the remains of her husband, returning him to life to copulate with him and giving birth to their son Horus. When Horus grows and becomes adult fights against Seth for the throne of Egypt defeating him.
This myth appears repeatedly with different versions throughout the history of Egypt from the pyramid texts of the early dynasties to the most recent Ptolemaic temples.
