More details

  • Anhur was epescially popular in the New Kingdom - during his festival mock battles were staged in his honour (Anhur remained popular after the New Kingdom, especially in Abydos - he was to be called Onouris by the ancient Greeks).

    Anhur was united with the god Shu in later times of ancient Egypt, to form the dual god Anhur-Shu.
