Horus the Elder may or may not be the same spirit as Horus, son of Isis. He may be the oldest form of Horus. This Horus is described as the brother of Osiris, Set, Nephthys, and Isis, the fifth wheel among those two married couples. Horus the Elder is the husband of Hathor (and sometimes her son, too). He was the patron deity of Upper Egypt (southern Egypt). He is the archetypal king. The sun and moon are his eyes.
