- n. The Greek and Roman conception of the Egyptian deity Amen (literally, ‘hidden’), called Amen-Ra, the sun-god, chief of the Theban divine triad. Amen was always represented in human form, and was of a much higher order than the ram-headed divinity, the god of life, worshiped especially at the famous oracular sanctuary of the Libyan oasis of Ammon (now Siwah). The latter type was confused by the Greeks and Romans with that of Amen-Ra, and was adopted by them as Zeus-Ammon or Jupiter-Ammon, but in art was generally idealized so that only the horns, sometimes with the ears, of the ram were retained, springing from a human head.
- n. An ancient people of Israel.
