Ammon is the wind and fertility god of the ancient Egyptian religion. The Greeks identified Amun with Zeus, the Romans later with Jupiter. Similar to the head of the Medusa and the lion, Jupiter Ammon was attributed an ominous meaning during the imperial period. It is therefore frequently found on phalerae, articles of daily use and burial rites.
