|Horakhte|| in Greek:
He was written about in the pyramid texts (Old Kingdom) as a dog being connected to the dead pharaoh. Instead of wear- ing the double crown as protec- tor of the two countries he wore the sun disc (symbolizing Re) above his head to underline his aspect. He had his cult centre in the old religious solar city of Helio- polis (today located in modern Cairo) in Lower Egypt.
Sometimes it is hard (or even impossible without connecting hieroglyphs) to separate him from Re with whom he also was seen in an amalgam as Re-Horakhte which was a very popular god during the New Kingdom and onwards.
