An image of Mandulis from the Temple of Kalabsha in Nubia

The Temple of Kalabsha in Nubia was dedicated to Mandulis which was a Nubian form of Horus.[1] A cult dedicated to Mandulis can also be found in Egypt, at Philae.

Mandulis was often depicted wearing an elaborate headdress of ram's horns, cobras and plumes surmounted by sun discs.[2] He was sometimes shown in the form of a hawk, but wearing a human head.[3]
