Amun – God of Winds.
Amun (Imn, Amon, Amen) is the patron God of Thebes, a god of the wind and King of the Gods. Initially a local God of Thebes, with Amaunet he represented the primordial concept or element of air or invisibility. Later he was to become the Patron God of Thebes, replacing Monthu. During the rule of Ahmose I he fused with the sun God Ra to become Amun-Ra. It was thought that Amun created himself and then his surroundings.
He is usually depicted in human form, with two plumes on his head and carrying the ankh symbol and the was scepter. He was called upon by those who believed suffering had come about as a result of their own or others wrongdoing. He was also able to calm stormy seas.
In the Hymn to Amun-Ra he is described as
“Lord of truth, father of the gods, maker of men, creator of all animals, Lord of things that are, creator of the staff of life.”
