The first specific mention of Seth (H) may have been in a tomb of the Guardian era in the Nakada culture of the second half of pre-Dynastic Egypt about 5000 years ago. Most people associate Seth (H) with the traits he acquired during the rise of the Assyrian (Osiris) community. In the Assyrian mythology, Seth (H) becomes wicked, chaotic, and a murderer. He became an archaeologist. The Norse version of Loki Hall Seth (H) because he was introduced to the Osirian cult myth. Was it originally the character of Set (H)? In short, no. Before the rise of the Osirian cult, Seth (h) was the god of weather, equivalent to Semitic Baal, Greek Zeus, or Hurrian Tess (š).
Set (h) was strongly associated with meteorological events, in particular, violent storms, floods, thunderstorms, thunderstorms and wind events. In Book of Dead Spell 110, Seth (h) is told that the sky “twists” and the water (s) rises because of the annoyance of the wind to bring Horace back to life and rescue him. Both the sky “blowing” and the rising water (s) reflect the strong relationship of the set (h) with the weather-related water and events. The set (h) was called, ‘Lord of the wind (s)’. He is further told, ‘One / he / towards whom the sky trembles.’ Yet another title of Set (H) is, ‘Lord of the North Sky.’ Set (H) as the ‘lord of the northern sky’ was thought to be responsible for the destructive power of the storm. Seth (H) was ‘blessed, yet, god of dangerous storms.’
The flood caused by Set (h) was different from the annual flood representing other Egyptian gods in the Nile Valley. Hermann Te Velde, author of an original essay on the Egyptian god Set (h), gives some examples of the connection of Set (h) with the flow / flood: Set (h) is referred to as the sinking asir / Osiris or its cause. Set in pyr (h). 20d is described as rolling water from his arm. Set (h) is said to be the force on the water. Set (h) in his evil plan is said to have flooded the land and thrown the sky to the ground (literally “sent”) (torrential rain / catastrophe).
Set (h) also carries other properties. Set (h) was considered the most powerful of the Egyptian gods because Set (h) was the Egyptian god of power, strength and power. There are numerous references throughout the Egyptian corpus which refer to the strength and power of the set (H). It is no small surprise that the scepter took on the shape of a set (H) as a sha / set (H) animal. The scepter is a symbol of power and domination. Seth (h) and a number of other Egyptian deities were known to carry it.
Set (h) was the god of the desert, the ‘Red Lands’ as opposed to Asir among others who were the gods of the ‘Black Lands’ – . For this reason, Seth (h) was associated with foreign and foreign lands as the god of those things. Seth (H) cult centers have been found in isolated deserts around Egypt.
Interestingly, several titles of Seth (H) refer to him as “Lord of the South”, “Lord of the South”, “Lord of Upper Egypt”. The Set (H) cult was mostly concentrated in Nakada, also known as Nubat and Ombos – in the 5th nome of Upper Egypt, in the middle of the bend, west of the Nile. Don’t be confused with an Ombos (Kom Ombo) / Nubt in the 1st name of Upper Egypt. Set (H) is referred to as “one of the Nuber (or from)” or “Lord of the Nuber”. Of interest, pre-ethnic Nakada culture and Kushit A-group culture were strongly linked.
