Amun-Gereb

I've just hear His name mentioned in a documentary, but can't immediately find info about Him.
Has anyone heard of this Name of Amun?

In the LAGG there is an epithet:

nb grb 'Lord of the grb-document'

From this documentary?

'Osiris, Sunken Mysteries of Egypt'

"The Decree of Canopus–a stele of 238 BC discovered in 1881 at Kom el-Hisn–tells us that ceremonies celebrating the “Mysteries of Osiris” were performed in the Great Temple of Amun-Gereb in Thonis- Heracleion, just as they were in most of the cities of Egypt. According to the text on the stela, these mysteries culminated in a long water procession, transporting Osiris along canals from the temple of Amun-Gereb in Thonis-Heracleion to his shrine in the city of Canopus.

Found another reference:

https://www.jstor.org/stable/24644977?read-now=1&seq=9#page_scan_tab_contents

“des texts du temple d’Edfou révèlent que le géreb que renferme l’étui mékes est précisément l’inventaire du domaine royal. Amun d’Héracléion, dit “le géreb”, était donc spécialement vénéré comme celui qui transmet au souverain le titre écrit qui confirm la souveraineté universelle revenant au tout novel héritier du soleil.”

-J. Yoyotte, Egypte, Afrique et Orient 24 (2001), 31.

["...texts from the temple of Edfu reveal that the gereb (document, decree) contained in the mekes case is precisely the inventory of the royal domain. Amun of Heraclion, called "gereb", was therefore especially venerated as the one who transmits to the sovereign the written title which confirms the universal sovereignty of the new heir to the sun."]

Hope that helps.

Heh. I just now noticed you are in Belgium. I suppose my translation was not really needed (and maybe not as good as what you could have done). Ah well...
