Alternate Names: Orion, Sahu

To the ancient Egyptian people, Sah was the the diefied embodiment of the constellation Orion. This constellation was considered to be either a form of Wesir, or where Wesir dwelled.

Sah is mentioned quite frequently in the Pyramid Texts where he is called "father of the gods" and the deceased king is said to enter the sky 'In the name of the dweller in Orion, with a season in the sky and a season on earth'.

In the funerary texts of the New Kingdom, Orion is said to row towards the stars in a boat and Sah is sometimes depicted in this manner in representations found in tombs and temples; as a god surrounded by stars who sails across the sky in a papyrus skiff.

In one myth, Sah is known for his protective powers against demons.
