A statue of Amun in Karnak

Amun, (meaning the Hidden One), was a major deity in the Egyptian pantheon. He was eventually fused with the sun god Ra as Amun-Ra.

Amun was considered the champion of the poor and downtrodden who upheld justice, as well as the king of the gods, divided into two forms as Amunet, the goddess of invisibility, and master of the wind. A temple was dedicated to him in Siwa, and he was often represented by a ram.[1] Within said temple was also the office of the Oracle of Amun, a position held by Medunamun during 48 BCE.[2]

Amun also served as the patron god of Thebes, and together with his consort Mut and their son Khonsu, they were known as the Theban Triad.[3]
