In religio-mythology, supreme god (TR:66) (LH:14) (TL:80) refers to a god that is leader or creator god of a god family; the top god of in a henotheism; or a god who becomes dominant in belief power during a certain recension, tending to be specific to a state religion.
The following are related quotes:
- “Most people believe that Amoun [Amen] is the name given to Zeus in the land of the Egyptians, a name which we, with slight alteration, pronounce Ammon. But Manetho of Sebennytus thinks that the meaning ‘concealed’ or ‘concealment’ likes in this world. Hectaecus of Abdera, however, says that the Egyptians use this expression one to another whenever they call to anyone, for the world is a form of address. When they, therefore, address the supreme god, whom they believe to be the same as the ‘universe’, as if he were invisible and concealed, and implore him to make himself visible and manifest to them, they use the word ‘Amoun’.”
