An Egyptian ankh necklace
Horus was considered as the patron-god of the pharaohs and of their royal houses. The living ancient Egyptian pharaoh has always been represented as the incarnation of the god Horus (for this reason, we often find today some Egyptian hieroglyphs which use the term "Horus" to mention a pharaoh).
In ancient Egypt, Horus was especially worshipped in the city of Edfu (where is located the "temple of Horus" which has the particularity of having been very well preserved until today because it has been covered with dry sand for several millennia).
A pendant from ancient Egypt
Horus was a god very loved by the ancient Egyptian because this hawk-headed god was considered as the protector of the world against the god of chaos, the god Set. Horus even had the right to sometimes become the god of the Sun in certain eras of Egypt (some periods where Horus was called "Ra-Horus" or "Ra-Horakhty").
Horus is mentioned by many Greek authors as the son of Osiris, an Egyptian deity regarded as the first pharaoh to have ruled Egypt. Herodotus also identified Horus as a form of the Greek god Appolo, the ancient god of the Sun. The "Egyptian constellation of Horus" was called "the constellation of Appolo-Horus" by the Greeks.
