Disk, Winged

Disk, Winged with pendant crowned uraei, carrying the cross of life, was an emblem placed over the doorways to the Egyptian temples, and is supposed to represent the progress of the sun in the heavens from east to west. As a form of the solar deity it was a symbol of the god Horus likewise, and was regarded by the Egyptians as the protecting or benevolent spirit, the

Agathodaemon of the Greeks. Its analogue was in some respects the Ferohir of the Assyrians, and perhaps the Spirit of the Sun of the Cabalists.
