The deities were said to come from the sweat of the
sun god, and human beings came from his tears. The
power of creation was often attributed to the sun, but
several deities were also called “the creator”. In the
temple at Heliopolis, the Benu bird was the frst deity.
The bird was a manifestation of the creator sun god
and brought the frst light into the darkness and chaos.
When it landed on the prehistoric little earth mound it
screeched - and that was the frst sound.
