D is for Dedwen! Anthropomorphic (having characteristics of human being) god presiding over Nubia. At a very early
date Dedwen had come to present not only Nubia but also its
resources, and especially incense - which was imported into
Egypt from the south. He identified as the
supplier of incense for the gods and was also said to burn
incense at royal births. Temples in Nubia were built for Dedwen by Tuthmosis III at el-Lessiya and Uronarti but there is no evidence for a cult centre of this god north of Aswan.
