Aten

Lord of Heaven, Lord of Earth.

Cult Center: At Tell el-Amarna in the city of Akhetaten (the horizon of Aten)
Attributes: The Aten gained its prominence during the reign of Akhenaten. The heretic king made an effort it seems, to unite all the peoples of Egypt under one god. He abolished the traditional cults of Egypt and replaced them with the Aten. Unfortunately for Akhenaten, the Egyptians did not wish to be united in this fashion. The king considered the Aten to be the creative force in the universe and the only god worthy of his worship.

Representation: Inscriptions state that the god had no physical image, but it was represented as a solar disk projecting many downward rays that ended as human hands. Sometimes holding ankhs, the symbol of eternal life.

 

 
The next goddess is Bastet.
