Seker was usually depicted as having the head of a hawk, and shrouded as a mummy, similar to Ptah.
Ra was the god of the sun during dynastic Egypt; the name is thought to have meant "creative power",
and as a proper name "Creator", similar to English Christian usage of the term "Creator" to signify the "almighty God."
Very early in Egyptian history Ra was identified with Horus, who as a hawk or falcon-god represented the loftiness of
the skies. Ra is represented either as a hawk-headed man or as a hawk. In order to travel through the waters of Heaven
and the Underworld, Ra was depicted as traveling in a boat.

In earliest times, Set was the patron deity of Lower (Northern) Egypt, and represented the fierce storms of the desert

Dynasty, Set became known as the evil enemy of Horus (Upper Egypt's dynastic god).
Set was the brother of Osiris, Isis, and Nephthys, and husband of the latter; according to some versions of the myths
he is also father of Anubis.
Set is best known for murdering his brother and attempting to kill his nephew Horus; Horus, however, managed to survive
and grew up to avenge his father's death by establishing his rule over all Egypt, castrating Set, and casting him out
into the lonely desert for all time.
In the 19th Dynasty there began a resurgence of respect for Set, and he was seen as a great god once more, the god
who benevolently restrained the forces of the desert and protected Egypt from foreigners.
Seth: Child of Geb and Nut, sibling of Osiris, Isis, and Nephthys. Seth is a complex figure who seems in the main to be
adversarial in nature. The most mythologies have Seth at war with his brother Osiris, a war in which he defeats Osiris but
is in turn defeated by Osiris' heir, Horus. Seth was originally a god of strength, storms, foreign lands and deserts.
He protected desert caravans but also created sandstorms. He was one of the Ennead and he was the husband of Ashtart and

of his cult was in Cynopolis. He was closely associated with the god Ash.

aspects. She was identified with the Greek goddess, Athena.
Neith is usually shown wearing the red crown of Lower Egypt. She became part of a triad with her consort, the god Seth,
and their son, the crocodile-god, Sobek by the Old Kingdom (2686-2181 BC). Her role as a mother goddess also led to her
being known as "Great Cow" ( as well as the goddesses Hathor and Nut).

Wadj, the third king of the1st Egyptian Dynasty. His stela is displayed at the Louvre in Paris. It is made of
limestone carved by the sculptor Serekh.
The stela was discovered near the ancient city of Abydos where Wadj's mortuary complex is located.
The only other place that Egyptologists found a reference to him was in an inscription near the city of Edfu, to the
south of Egypt.
His wife was Queen Mereneith, who acted as mentor and advisor for his successor, King Den.
Den was the fourth king during the 1st Dynasty. Because the king came to power in Egypt as an infant, Queen Merenith
was appointed as his political advisor, which essentially meant that she ruled Egypt until he was capable of doing
Den ruled Egypt for almost fifty years after Wadj. He was an energetic and athletic person, and was artistic as well.
He figures in the Ebers papyrus as well as the Berlin medical Papyrus. Den was militarily actibe in the Sinai, which
was justified by his interest in protecting the mineral resources of the peninsula.
His mortuary complex was built in the ancient city of Abydos, but his body was buried at Saqqara.
Anedjib was the fifth king during the 1st dynasty. He kept Memphis as his capitol city throughout his 14 years of rule.
Anedjib's crown carried the symbols of both Upper and Lower Egypt, a representation of the unification of the country
under his power.
Historians, however, doubt that Anedjib really controlled the north, due to the fact that the
northern Nomes rebelled against him constantly throughout his reign.
His wife, Queen Betrest, was the mother of King Semerkhet, who was his successor. The queen provided Anedjib
with legitimacy and power since she was a descendant from the Memphite royal line.
Semerkhet was the sixth king of the 1st Dynasty. He was the son of King Adjib and Queen Betrest, and for unknown
reasons, only ruled for eight years.
Egyptologists discovered very little, save for a black stela with Semerkhet's name carved on it.
Aha, probably the son of Narmer and his queen Nithotep, is thought to be the first king of the 1st Dynasty. A tomb at
Abydos is attributed to him. It is the largest in the northwestern part of the cemetery, and another tomb close by
contained labels with the name Berner-Ib, or "Sweetheart," possibly his queen.
Merytneith, or Merneith
Around this time MerytNeith, or Merneith, meaning "Beloved of Neith," seems to have taken the throne, either to rule
alone after Djer, or perhaps after his successor Djet, as regent for her son Den, if she was Djet’s wife. On a clay seal
impression the names of the early kings from Narmer to Den are inscribed, and MerytNeith is given the title of
"King’s Mother." At this time the Queens, or more properly, Great wives, since there is no word for "queen" in the
Egyptian language, bore the titles "She who unites the Two Lands" and "She who sees Horus and Set." The inclusion of
the name Neith, or Nit, goddess of Sais in the Delta, would seem to indicate that MerytNeith at least had strong northern
connections. A later necropolis seal belonging to Qaa, last king of the first dynasty, omitted MerNeith’s name from the
list of kings.
MerytNeith was buried at Abydos and the building associated her reign at Saqqara, with 41 subsidiary or servant
graves, indicates the pomp and solemnity generally accorded to the King.
Mestha is shown as a mummified man with a beard
Hapi is Babboon headed man
Taumautef is shown as a jackal headed man
Qubhsennuf is shown as a falcon headed man.
Mestha- Protector of the South and the stomach and large intestines of the deceased. He was protected by the goddess Isis
