Sebek (Sebeq, Suchos, Sobek, Sebak) In Egyptian mythology, the crocodile god, called Suchos by the Greeks. In Egyptian art Sebek is portrayed as a crocodile-headed man, wearing either a solar disk encircled by a uraeus or a pair of ram’s horns surmounted by a disk and a pair of plumes. Frequently, however, the god appears simply as a crocodile. Sometimes Sebek is combined with the sun god Ra to form the composite god Sebek-Ra.
