[PUBLIC] Welcome! / I finally did it! I sent in my application!
« on: December 29, 2018, 04:32:07 pm »
Em hotep *henu*

For anyone who doesn't know me, I've been reading the HON boards for 20+ years (I actually joined the boards about 16 years ago) -- I remember when one of forums was called Netjer_The_One_The_Many. I've seen so many people come and go (and sometimes come back), and watched the House change and grow (albeit from afar, but always with fondness).

After many, many years of vacillating back and forth, I have finally sent in my application for the Beginner's Course. I can't wait to get started learning!

My avatar on here for many years was a photo of a baboon, for any who might recall that.
I'm hugely interested in Egyptology, particularly the Predynastic, Protodynastic, and Old Kingdom.

Hugs to all!

So, Semer-Wati means something like “Unique Friend of the King”, is that correct?

Two questions, the first being, is the feminine form of that word Semer-Watit? And secondly, I know in HoN it’s used to indicate a person has been to Egypt with Hemet (AUS). What was it used to indicate in ancient times? I think I have heard of Senmut (Hatshepsut’s architect) having the title “Unique friend of the King”, but that is the only instance I know about.

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Set and other earlier names
« on: December 11, 2017, 10:12:25 am »
Hello all *henu*

So I came across a reference the other day that stated the first known attestation of Set came about in the 2nd dynasty (this is in connection to the Nisut (AUS) Peribsen and Nisut (AUS) Khasekhemwy with their unusual serekhs).

I was pretty puzzled by that -- I had always had the impression that Set was a Name that was known to have existed in pre-dynastic times, along with Heru (Since most academic sources publish with the Greek names, I've never been clear if the "Horus" they refer to is Heru-Wer, Heru-sa-Aset, or another Heru, or if Heru was "just" Heru in pre-dynastic times).

Does anyone know if Set appears in the historical record in pre-dynastic times?

I thought might be helpful if we had an index thread for Names that are viewed as Aspected or Syncretized, specifically whether that view is from Ancient or Modern times. That way, people who are looking for information on a specific Name can have some idea of where to look and what to look for. I also know there are some Names that in Ancient times, are harder to classify, i.e., its not certain they were aspected or syncretized, but it seems likely -- such as Names with no known temples of their own.

Please feel free to add to this, or correct it!

Known Ancient:
--------------
Hethert-Sekhemet
Amun-Ra
Ra-Atum
Yinepu-Wepwawet
Sobek-Ra
Ra-Heruakhety

--------------
Likely Ancient:

Nebethet-Nit
Serqet-Aset


--------------
Known Modern:

Bast-Mut

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Who is Ash?
« on: December 01, 2013, 11:10:49 pm »
I was reading tonight, and came across a reference on Wikipedia to a God of the Oasis in Egypt called Ash.  Some more Google searching found nothing except copies of the same text. Ash is not listed on the House's glossary of Names, and Ash's characteristics (associated with the Libyans, etc), and depiction makes me wonder if this is a specialized form of Seth?

Hello all!

I've been watching the Stylus Productions Lectures on Ancient Egypt (by Dr. William Neininger) and I was quite taken aback by the lecturer stating that there was evidence of wide-scale desecration of tombs during Peribsen's reign. According to the lecture, *all* of the royal tombs from Dynasty 1 and Dynasty 2 up to Peribsen were broken into, robbed, and *burned* during Peribsen's reign. I have not come across any reference to fire damage to any of the early mastaba tombs before, so I was wondering if anyone here was familiar with this.

I'm particularly interested in the protodynastic and early dynastic periods of Kemet's history, so I'd appreciate any info folks here can share.

Thank you!

[PUBLIC] Welcome! / Peering out from under the rock again

Em hotep!

For those who don't know me, I've been reading these boards for about 15 years. I don't know if I hold the record for the longest-running guest who's never taken the Beginner course, but I imagine I'm pretty close. I dearly love the House of Netjer, and though I post very rarely, I do read the boards fairly regularly. I have loved ancient Egypt since I was very young, and I consider myself to be a friend of KO.

I'm a fan of Set, Wadjet and Nekhbet, Nit, and Djehuty, with a fondness for the entire Ogdoad (though there's little I've ever been able to find out about Them other than Amun).

I don't know whether or not I would be accepted into the Beginner course, but I do wish to explore why I am always drawn back here in the end. The main problem I have had for the last few years is that I cannot figure out a way to reconcile practicing KO along with my own religion (Catholicism). I am aware that there are folks who do that, and I wish I knew how they resolved that in their hearts. I envy them. While I do not actively worship Netjer, and I don't know if I even *can*, I certainly acknowledge Netjer (I pretty much have to, having had some brief experiences with Nit, Aset, and Wesir a few years back!)

To all here who remember me, hello again! To all who have joined during one of my long quiet phases, hello to you too!

Hugs to all!
