Ra is an ancient Egyptian god who personified the sun, the Duat and thought to be creator of man as a whole. He was known to have merged with other gods such as Amun, Atum, Horus, among others. Ra was considered to be most iconic solar deity that ever existed in all of ancient Egypt.

By the 1st century BCE, several weapons were named as tributes to Ra, including a mace and a light bow.

In 48 BCE, a criminal went by the name Son of Ra, acting in and around Dionysias, presumably due to mystic reasons.


  • The Eye of Horus which consist of an eye inside of what appears to be a falcon is often mistaken for the eye of Ra, since both gods are strongly associated with each other within the mythology.
