MYTHOLOGY: The name Sobek means 'crocodile'. He was a crocodile god much favored by the kings of the twelfth and thirteenth dynasties. Many of the rulers of this period chose to bear names such as Sobek-Hotep, which means “Sobek is merciful”. His main place of worship was in the Nome of Faiyum of which he was the patron deity. His temple there had a holy lake where a sacred crocodile named Pet-Sobek “he who belongs to Sobek” was kept. He had associations with the god Horus and a further identification with Ra led to a form of the crocodile with the solar disk on his head. He was usually represented as either a crocodile or a man with a crocodile’s head. Sobek was a god of the water. Ancient Egyptians believed the Nile River issued from his sweat, and that he “made the herbage green”.
