MIDDLE-EAST MYTHOLOGY

The Gods of Old Testament Times...

AMMON

Middle-Eastern God

Also known as AMUN, AMON, AMEN

Ram-headed God

Is more or less Egyptian.

His temple was found in Libya in an area where Ammonia salts were discovered and he also has fossils named after him. You know those things called Ammonites? All sort of curly? Resembling ram horns? Well, that’s where the name came from. The Holy Snail thought we should pop this in.
