Golden Montu shirt now available. Montu was a primordial solar god of the Theban region , whose cult would last until the end of ancient Egyptian history; nevertheless, in the Late period, because of the many ambient animal cults, the cult of Montu focused on that of the animal which became earthly hypostasis, the Bukhis bull.
Montu was foremost a solar entity and as such is embodied in a hawk, but he also possessed a warrior nature which made a bull-god of him. His cult worship was distributed in the rest of the country, thanks to the sovereigns of the 11th Dynasty (about 2055-1650 BC) who, placed under his protection, succeed in reunifying the country under the authority of Thebes. Several among them chose "Montuhotep" (Montu is satisfied) as their coronation name. The association with Montu in this victory explains why, since the beginning of the 12th Dynasty, Montu became a war god, subject to Amun, the new god of the empire, a role which he kept until the end.
