'The Gold Horus' by YOUR-PLAGUE-DOCTOR 'The Gold Horus' by YOUR-PLAGUE-DOCTOR
Meet Hornub :) Crappy Sketch sorry!
Not much is known about him in Egyptian Mythology! But he is an actual deity! 
He is the son of Thoth, god of wisdom, the moon, time, speech, writing etc... and Seshat, goddess of writing, wisdom and learning!
I've read in a few places that Hornub was also associated with wisdom, writing and learning. Plus he was his father's
assistant in the libraries. So Thoth had help from his wife and his son! I have read elsewhere that Thoth had children with his
other wife Ma'at, but again so little is mentioned about them. 
Hornub's name means 'The Gold Horus' hence the title of this sketch! So I decided to make him a golden coloured falcon headed
man! Horus is falcon headed too, but for obvious reason I made Nubz (My own nick name for him lol), is gold! I haven't
finished colouring this sketch yet, but in case I never do complete it, I thought I would put it up now! I would be interested to 
know if anyone else knows anything about him!? I've decided he has a very genuine personality, very friendly and helpful to his
family and friends. He idolises his parents. And obvious because he's the child of the two nerdiest gods in the Egyptian Pantheon, 
he is also a nerd ;) But quite a well built one as you can see ;) Being a deity has it's perks.

Yeah he's real :D There just isn't any pictures of him anywhere, so I designed him myself.
There is barely anything written about him!

Love the design! I wish we could get to know more about such minor deities, not only in Egyptian mythology, but others too! They really show how varied and specific religion can be!

Yes so many minor deities are hidden from us! And nothing is really known about them! It's sad, but
I guess they are being uncovered as time goes on :D Each religion is so different :aww: That's why 
I love Egyptian Mythology so much, some of the relationships that went on between certain gods are
very interesting! And the families they had!

it's a pity so much was lost...makes me wonder what will become myth and legend from our times in the future.
