Amun

Chief of the gods during the New Kingdom, Amun was depicted as a man with two tall plumes rising above his headdress, or as a ram or a goose. He, his wife, Mut, and their son, Khonsu, represented the Theban Triad, the sacred family of Thebes. Amun rose in prominence but did not become a state deity. He was associated with the god Re and venerated as the god Amun-re.
