Egyptian Water God
Also known as Nu
Creator God of the Primordial Waters
A member of the Ogdoad Creation Team, he has his own solar boat which he takes on round-the-world trips.
Like the rest of his compatriots, he has a frog’s head. Unlike them, his seems to be vaguely appropriate as he loves messing about in water.
His consort is Naunet, who has good sea legs though her head is very snaky. Their son Ptah breathes new life into the whole story.
