Unfortunately the actual name of the crown that Amun is usually depicted as wearing, from which the double ostrich plumes sit atop, has recently slipped my mind, and I'm wondering if anyone here remembers?

It was stated somewhere on the net, but I have been unable to locate it since then.

Mary500 the Khepresh is the blue "war" crown worn by a Per-aa during battle or on military campaigns.



Hydarnes I don't ever recall reading the name of Amun's headress. I cannot find the Kemetian name for the headress of Amun online or in any of my references! All generally call it the 'crown with double feather and sun disc".

I will continue to search.

Amun's crown is called the Shuty Smile
