Tatenen

by Micha F. Lindemans
"Exalted Earth". A primeval Egyptian earth-god who represents the mound (or hill) that arose from the primordial water. He is represented with the horns of a ram and wearing a crown with feathers. At Memphis he was connected to Ptah (Ptah-Tenen) in his aspect as a creator god, and also with Horus. As a vegetation god, he could be portrayed with green skin.
