Amen-Ra

Additional Links

(Amen. the Sun; or the Self-suficient, the Hidden) was the Supreme Being of the Egyptians considered as an abstract entity; all the other deities, even Ra himself, being but emanations from him. He was chiefly adored at Thebes, in Upper Egypt, and his worship was repeatedly overthrown and restored in Egypt during the principal dynasties.
