Ahlan!!!

I would like to know if the ureaus is an attribute of the god Ptah. In the "Gran Diccionario de Mitología Egipcia" of Elisa Castel, when you look up "Ptah", there is a picture that shows this god as a potter with an ureaus on his forehead.



Kisses,

EVIE

The most familiar pictation of the ureaus is on the Royal Crowns, both for the Pharaoh and for the Great Wife. It was believed that the ureaus was the protector of the wearer, who would rear up and spit poison at an enemy. The ureaus, along with the vulture, seems to have been used as a symbol of royalty and also of gods and goddesses.

Whilst the uraeas has been an optional symbol of Ptah since his first appearance, it most commonly appears on his headress when he is in the role of royal workman-king, either as Ptah-Sokar, or later as the hybrid deity Ptah-Seker-Osiris:



During the Middle Kingdom, Ptah-Sokar (of whom I am sure you are already well aware) was further combined with the King of the Dead Osiris to become Ptah-Sokar-Osiris. In both these this forms, Ptah frequently wears the nemes headress with uraeas, or the older skull-cap with or without the uraeas present. He is also frequently shown wearing the following, more elaborate headdress:
