He was shown with the head of a ram with horizontal horns. He was one of the earliest Egyptian Gods, originally the God of the Origin of the Nile. Because the Nile brought the life-giving soil, he was considered the Creator God of human children. He used a potter's wheel to make the children. With his two wives, Satet and Ankeet, they were the trinity of the first cataract area on the Nile near today's Aswan. The center of his cult was on Elephantine Island.
