I hope this helps -- and as always, if someone has further research to share or thoughts to add that builds on or adjusts what I've written here, please do share.


Wesir, Aset and Heru-sa-Aset were honored in the Fayyum from the Middle Kingdom.  Sobek is considered the son of Aset and Wesir.  There are Sobek-Heru and Sobek-Wesir syncretisms. 

Much of the information comes from Soknopaios Nesos/Dime.

Here is an article about it:  Zecchi, Marco. “Osiris in the Fayyum.” Fayyum Studies: Volume 2. Sergio Pernigotti and Marco Zecchi, ed. Ante Quem and Dipartimento di Archeologia dell’Università di Bologna, 2006.
