Seth

Seth was an ambiguous Egyptian god, patron of disorder, envy, violence and storms. Within the Osiris myth he is portrayed as the usurper to his brother Osiris, killing him and causing chaos. However he maintains a positive role when accompanying Ra and repels the serpent of Chaos, Apep. He was a god particularly favoured by the 19th Dynasty, New Kingdom Kings such as Seti I. Such scarabs depicting Seth-Baal were thus very popular during this time.
Seth was closely identified with the Near Eastern god Baal, becoming a ‘hybrid’ deity, merging to form the winged Seth-Baal.
