Montu was a Sun God and a Warrior God. He was shown as a man with a falcon head like Horus, but with two plumes and a Sun disk on his head. He was later associated with Ra as Ra Montu. Montu's worship survived for many years into Greek times. He was eventually considered by the Greek as a form of the war God Aries.
