Chnum

Redirected from Khnum

In Egyptian mythology, Chnum was the god of the Nile River delta, and the creator of human children, whom he makes from clay and places in their mothers' uteruses. He was married to Menhit (alternatively: Heget) and, with her, father of Hike.

On Elephantine Island[?], he was worshipped alongside Anuket and Satis.
