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. Within said temple was also the office of the Oracle of Amun, a position held by Medunamun during 48 BCE.
Behind the scenes
- The Greeks equated Amun with Zeus, and the two became intertwined in the Hellenistic Era as the syncretic deity called Zeus Ammon.
- One of the Isu messengers was called 'Amun Amunet messenger'.
