Har-nedj-itef

by Micha F. Lindemans
An Egyptian guardian god, one of the manifestations of Horus. In this form, he guards his father Osiris in the underworld and therefore called 'Horus the savior of his father'. Har-nedj-itef (Greek: Harendotes) also protects the dead and is portrayed as a falcon on sarcophagi.
