SEBEK
Also known as SOBEK, SOCHET, SUCHOS

Crocodile God of Might and Power

But only where pharaohs are concerned. The rest of us have to fight our own battles.

SEBEK is depicted as a large crocodile, and has all the dangerous attributes you might expect: cunning, treachery, deceit and sharp pointy teeth. Careful — it could all end in tears.

He's possibly the husband of TAWERET, although it's hard to see what they have in common. And we're delighted to reveal that his biggest shrine was located in the city of Crocodilopolis.

The Greeks liked him enough to give him a pet name: PETESUCHOS.
