Horus is ane o the auldest an maist significant deities in auncient Egyptian releegion, who wis worshippit frae at least the late Predynastic period throu tae Greco-Roman times. Different forms o Horus are recordit in history, an these are treatit as distinct gods bi Egyp specialists. These various forms mey possibly be different perceptions o the same multi-layered deity in which certain attributes or syncretic relationships are emphasisit, no necessarily in opposition but complementary tae ane anither, consistent wi hou the Auncient Egyptians viewed the multiple facets o reality. He wis maist aften depictit as a falcon, maist likely a lanner or peregrine, or as a man wi a falcon heid.
