Y for Yamm

Yamm, the power of the sea untamed and raging; he is seen as ruling storms and the disasters they wreak. He was a tyrannical god found in a fragmentary papyrus (Astarte Papyrus) which seems to hint that his exorbitant demands for tribute from the other deities were eventually thwarted by the goddess Astarte.

The challenge is almost over, I hope I didn't bore you to death with my "Egyptian stuff". There is only one more letter in an alphabet...

Tomorrow will be my stitching update (smile).

So long my friends,


  1. Yaam--I love the full power of the sea and every one of its other moods. Your examples of Egyptian words are fresh and exciting to me.

  2. Yam sounds a bit like Zeus, who was god of thunder, and seen as rather angry and raging. Over from A to Z saying hi! Catherine

  3. I didn't know about Yamm. Only yams.


Thank you for leaving your comments. They mean a world to me, keep me inspired and motivated.
