(aka Khepra, Khepera)
Khepri was a god of creation, the movement
of the sun, and rebirth.
Because of his association
with the sunrise he is considered to be one of the creator gods.
It was Khepri
that pushed the sun across the sky in much the same fashion that a dung
beetle (scarab) pushed a ball of
dung across the ground.
In certain creation stories, Khepri is connected
with the god Atum.
He is also connected with the
sun god Ra who pushed the sun through the sky
He was represented as a man with a scarab head, or a scarab.
