On this 46 Yahweh and the Sun An alternative explanation which accords at least as well with the presence of two emblems on otherwise identical royal jars is that the emblems are in some way alternative expressions of essentially the same idea. Indeed, the equivalency of these two emblems is clearly attested in the ancient Near East, and to find it one needs to go no further than to Edfu in Egypt where the god Horus of Behdet (also known as Horus of Edfu), well known for his association with royalty, is attested as both winged sun disk and flying scarab beetle.
