(also Ra), in ancient Egyptian mythology and religion the god of the sun, who traveled across the sky in a boat that appeared on the horizon in the morning and sank into the “kingdom of the dead” in the evening. The cult of Re evidently emerged early in the third millennium B.C. By the middle of the third millennium B.C., Re was venerated as the king and father of the gods. Later, Amon was identified with Re (hence the name of the god Amon-Re). The city of Heliopolis was the center of the Re cult.
