  Amun - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography
Amun (also spelt Amon, Amoun, Amen, and rarely Imenand, and spelt in Greek as Ammon, and Hammon) was the name of a deity, in Egyptian mythology, who gradually rose to become one of the most important deities, before fading into obscurity.
Amun became depicted in human form, seated on a throne, wearing on his head a plain deep circlet from which rise two straight parallel plumes, possibly symbolic of the tail feathers of a bird, a reference to his earlier status as a wind god.
Consequently, Amun was viewed as upholding the rights to justice of the poor, being titled Vizier of the poor, and aiding those who travelled in his name,as the Protector of the road.

 Ancient Egypt Gods in Myths - Amun, Creator God at Thebes
Amun began his rise to nationwide importance in the 11th Dynasty when kings at Waset (Thebes) took the name Amenemhet ('Amun is pre-eminent').

In the 11th Dynasty, Amun was merged with the royal sun-cult of Re in Heliopolis, he was called 'Lord of the Thrones of the Two Lands of Upper and Lower Egypt'.

Thebes was at first their Egyptian capital, and they honoured Amun greatly, although their wealth and culture were not sufficient to effect much.
However, in the rest of Egypt, his cult was rapidly overtaken, in popularity, by the less devisive cult of the Legend of Osiris and Isis, which had not been associated with Akhenaten's actions.

 God's Wife of Amun - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The first royal wife to hold this post was the wife of Ahmose I, Queen Ahmose-Nefertari, and this event is recorded in a stela in the temple of Amun at Karnak, and the role seems to have been a priestly post of importance in the temple of Amun in Thebes.
The office of the God's Wife of Amun reached the very heights of its political power during the late Third Intermediate Period of Egypt when Shepenupet I, Osorkon III's daughter was first appointed to this post at Thebes.
Later, the Saite king Psamtik I would forcibly reunite Egypt in March 656 BC under his rule and compel the then serving God's Wife of Amun, Shepenupet II, daughter of Piye, to appoint his own daughter Nitocris as her chosen successor to this position.

 Ammon
The cult was taken over by the Egyptians, who identified the god with their supreme god Amun; they called god of the oracle 'Amun of Siwa, lord of good counsel'.
The first pharaoh said to have sacrificed to this god was Bocchoris (718-712), but the report, which was written in the second century CE by the Roman author Tacitus, is late and belongs to a rather suspect text; as a consequence, we can not be certain that it is true.
His cult spread to the Greek world, and was especially propagated by the poet Pindar (522-445), who was the first Greek to dedicate an ode to the god and one of the first Greeks to erect a statue to the god.
