An example from the Leyden Papyrus of Qenna:
All the neteru are three: Amun, Re, and Ptah, who have no equals. He whose nature [literally whose name] is mysterious, being Amun; Ra is the head, Ptah the body. Their cities on earth, established forever are: Thebes, Heliopolis, and Memphis [stable] for eternity. When a message comes from heaven, it is heard at Heliopolis, it is repeated at Memphis to Ptah, and it is made into a letter written in the letters of Thoth [at Hermopolis] for the city of Amun [Thebes].
A prince of Byblos in the eleventh century B.C.E. told an Egyptian emissary:
All lands did Amun found, and he founded them only after he founded the land of Egypt whence you have come; but technical skill spread from there as far as [this] place where I am.
Ammon The Egyptian Ram God. According to murals at the ancient temple of Luxor, this fertility god assumed the form of the reigning king in order to procreate, and divinify, the royal lineage. The transformation of horned beast to god reflects the animals crucial importance in Neolithic herdsman culture. The patron of Thebes, Ammon spoke through oracles and was equated by the Greeks with Zeus. In his name we find the universal sound (amen, amin, aum) whose utterance was holy. This Hellenized mask (c. 100 CE) hangs in the Vatican museum. picture and text © 1996 JBL Statues (now called Sacred Source), original text created by Tom Laudeman
The cornucopia is a horn-shaped container overflowing with fruit, vegetables, and flowers. It is the symbol of fruitfulness, fertility, and plenty. It is from the horn of the goat Amalthaea, which suckled the infant Ammon-Zeus.
