em hotep

here are some of the Titles of Sokar-Wesir from the Lexikon der Götterbezeichnungen:

a'a - "the Great"
chonty-imenty - "at the front of the westerners" (Chonty-imenty/Chontamenti was probably the name of the original Lord of the Netherworld worshipped at Abydos, it was adopted as a name and title first by Yinepu and later by Wesir)

em bu neb - "in every place" (perhaps: "omnipresent")
em pet - "in the sky"
em ta - "on earth"
em duat - "in the Duat"

em ren-f nebu - "in his every name"
em kheperw-f neb - "in all his forms"
em chet-f neb - "in his every body"
em khereb-f neb - "in his every transformation"
em set-f neb - "in his every place"
em sesheta-f neb - "in his every secret"
em kema-f neb - "in his every shape"

em Hut-Ka-Ptah - "in the House-of-the-Ka-of-Ptah" (the temple of Memphis)
em sheteet - "in the Sheteet" (the Sheteet is a special shrine of Sokar, I guess the name means 'the secret place' or 'the hidden place')

Sokar-Wesir-Henu - "Henu" is the name of the Barque of Sokar, the one with the inversed gazelle-heads


and titles of Sokar:

em Biket - "in the City of the Female Falcon" (I have no idea which place that is. the glyphs may also be translated "Sokar as the female falcon")
em Bikty - "in the City of the Two Female Falcons"
em Peqer - "in Peqer" (a place near Abydos)
em Pedju - "in Pedju" (unknown place)
em Faht - "in Faht" (a place near Memphis)
em sut-f imyu Ta-Mehu - "in his places which are in Lower Egypt"
em sut-f imyu Shemau - "in his places which are in Upper Egypt"
em sha mehty - "in the northern lake"
em sha resy - "in the southern lake"
en sekh-Netjer em Tany - "of the divine tent in Tanis"
em sekhu-Netjer imentet - "in the divine tents of the West"
em Ma'at - "in the Barque of Ma'at"
em set-f em Ra-Setjau - "in his place in Rasetjau"

em bw neb - "in every place"
em bw neb merr-f yim - "in every place where he wants to be"
em bw neb mer Ka-f yim - "in every place where his Ka wants to be"
em mahat-f nebet - "in his every tomb"
em sekh-f neb - "in his every tent"
em sekhw-Netjer-f nebu - "in all his divine tents"
em geregut-f nebut - "in all his foundations" (i.e. places he founded)
em pet - "in the sky"
em pet ta - "in the sky and on earth"

en Ma'aty - "of the two Ma'at"
em duau netjery - "Sokar in the divine morning"


...I didn't translate all of the stuff from the Lexikon - some titles are very similar, and I lost patience with the endless list of placenames, titles in the syle of "Sokar in ..."

Man... just looking at it on Google makes me wish I could read German (or have a mind for learning other languages).

Ma'en, this is awesome! :grin:

I've also seen "the One Who is on His sand" as an epithet for Sokar.... (Source: C.J. Bleeker, Egyptian Festivals: Enactments of Religious Renewal, Leiden: E. J. Brill, 1967.)

this seemed like an appropriate thread to post this question, but i don't mean to hijack it, so if anyone would rather i started a separate thread for this, just tell me!

i was doing a little reading on the website Per-Djehuty, which lists many different epithets for Him, and about three of them (i think) referred to Him as a lion.  this confused me, since i'm not aware of Djehuty ever being represented by any theophanies other than an ibis or a baboon.  does anyone know any more about this?

Almost every Name, at some point in time, has been linked with the lion.  The Lion was seen as not only the consumate hunter of all of Africa, but also a family animal: a loving mother, a protective father, etc.

When in doubt, choose a lion ;) !

Lions are also known for being very...athletic...when it comes to making cubs, so they have virility/fertility connections, too.

"Guardian of Sacred Places" or "He who protects sanctuaries/shrines from bad/evil" is one of my favorite epithet of his.

When Ma'ahes appears on temple doorways he is not only seen as a decorative element but a protective deity in such places where the function of an armed raging lion was thought to be most effective.

Here he is on the base of two jambs below three registers of reliefs on the doorway of the Temple of Hethert in Philae.
