mythology, Kebechsenef (also Qebehsenuf)
is a funerary god, associated with falcons
and canopic jars (specifically: the jar
which contained the intestines). He was
considered one of the Four
sons of Horus, and usually his mother
was said to be Isis.
As one of the four funerary gods, he was
watched over by Serket.
His name is variously realised as Kebehsenuf,
Kebechsenef or Qebehsenuf. It probably means
something like 'My Brothers' Libation'.
