The Battle Between Horus and Seth

The myth is one of the longest and most interesting myths in the ancient Egyptian mythology . At the beginning it was a battle for taking revenge and then it became a struggle for power . Of special interest of this story is the contradiction between civilization that appears clearly in the character of Horus and savageness that appears clearly in the character of Seth .
There are two completely different versions for the myth . One of these versions is narrated , as an epic , in a heroic tone and deals with serious action such as battles and supernatural power and so . The other one is narrated in a highly cynical way that ridicules the heroic action of the heroes and presents the event as just a mild altercation between the gods and goddesses . These different versions are used as a means for raising different public opinions and attitudes towards the heroes of the myth and making it difficult to differentiate between the criminal and the innocent . Of special interest in these versions is that they present the gods as natural human beings not as ideal creatures .
