Onuris (The Greek name commonly used for the Egyptian Anhur) was the Egyptian god of war and patron of the armed forces. His cult was focused in Abydos in Upper Egypt, particularly in the city of Thinis. In figural depictions, Onuris is often shown wearing a kilt and four-feathered headdress, with his right arm raised in the act of slaying an animal or enemy, or alternatively, holding a rope presumably used to capture his prey. Unsurprisingly given the martial connection, Onuris was a popular god amongst the Romans. The Emperor Tiberius chose to depict himself on a column shaft in the temple of Kom Ombo wearing the god's characteristic plumed crown.
