Horus is one of the most significant ancient Egyptian deities. He was worshipped from at least the late prehistoric Egypt until the Ptolemaic Kingdom and Roman Egypt. He was most often depicted as a falcon, most likely a lanner falcon or peregrine falcon, or as a man with a falcon head.
Horus was born to the goddess Isis after she retrieved all the dismembered body parts of her murdered husband Osiris, except his penis, which was thrown into the Nile and eaten by a catfish.She used her magic powers to resurrect Osiris and fashion a golden phallus, to conceive her son.
Once Isis knew she was pregnant with Horus, she fled to the Nile Delta marshlands to hide from her brother Seth, who jealously killed Osiris and who she knew would want to kill their son. There Isis bore a divine son, Horus.
