Harakhti

by Micha F. Lindemans
The Egyptian god of the morning sun, whose name means 'Horus of the Horizon'. Harakhti (Harachte) is one of the many manifestations of Horus. The Egyptian pharaoh was said to be born on the eastern horizon as Harakhti and to rule over the eastern and western horizon in that form. In Heliopolis he coalesced with Re and was worshipped as Re-Harakhti. He was depicted in the form of a falcon.
