Encyclopedia Mythica article on Horus. Stephanie Cass says, "The name "Horus" is a general catchall for multiple deities.... In all the Horus deities the traits of kingship, sky and solar symbology, and victory reoccur. As the prototype of the earthly king, there were as many Horus gods as there were rulers of Egypt, if not more."
