Egypt God Apophis Picture

Apep or Apophis was an evil god in ancient Egyptian religion depicted as a snake/serpent, the deification of darkness and chaos (ı͗zft in Egyptian), and thus opponent of light and Ma'at (order/truth), whose existence was believed from the 8th Dynasty (mentioned at Moalla) onwards. His name is reconstructed by Egyptologists as *ʻAʼpāpī, as it was written ꜥꜣpp(y) and survived in later Coptic as Ⲁⲫⲱⲫ Aphōph.[1] Apep is honored in the names of the 14th Dynasty king 'Apepi and of the Greater Hyksos king Apophis.
