Egypt - Rooms 61 & 62

Calf God (EA 22920)

1 of 4

A carving of someone worshipping the calf god, Apis, who was represented by a bull calf, and was thought to carry the sun across the sky. The golden calf built by Aaron and later by Jeroboam would have been like this. Aaron: “These are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt” (Ex 32:4). Later, Jeroboam made two golden calves for his shrines in Bethel and Dan, and said,“Here are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt” (1 Kg 13:28)
