Ptah has a menat?
« on: September 09, 2011, 01:03:28 pm »
Hotep Folks!

I've come across several images of Ptah and I keep finding this thing at the back of Him where the head meets the neck.

http://www.kenseamedia.com/egyptian_gods/images/ptah_triad.jpg

Now there are several other images that depict Him as having this sort of thing...my only question is...

What is it?

Looks almost like a menat, but I'm not certain.

Thanks!

It isn't just Ptah. Wesir also has it depending on the way he's being depicted (ie, when he's completely side-on like Ptah is.) But yes, I do believe it is a menat.
