Sobek, the Crocodile-headed Water God

The name Sobek means crocodile. This crocodile god was much favored by the kings of the twelfth and thirteenth dynasties and many of the rulers of this period chose to bear names such as Sobek-Hotep, which means “Sobek is merciful," which they hoped he would be along the banks of the Nile.

A patron deity, His main place of worship was in the Nome of Faiyum where His temple had a holy lake containing a sacred crocodile. Pet-Sobek “he who belongs to Sobek” was kept in the lake.

Sobek was also worshiped at Kom Ombo, where he replaced Seth in a triad of gods, becoming the husband of Hathor and the father of Khonsu.

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 understandably a god of the water, the Nile river issued from his sweat.

He “made the herbage green” and therefore took on a role related to healthy harvest.
