The name of Horus at an advanced age, which means 'the Elder Horus'. In this manifestation Horus reaches maturity and avenges his father Osiris against his enemy Seth. He defeats Seth and seizes the throne of Egypt.

In Kom Ombo (the ancient Noebt) in Upper Egypt, Har-wer was regarded as the son of the god Re and thus identical with the sky god Shu. Again, he is depicted in the form of a falcon.
