Osiris

Horus
Ra

Located between Aswan and Luxor on the west bank of the Nile, the Temple of Edfu was built around 200 BCE and dedicated to Horus, the falcon-headed god of kingship and the sky. The temple is known for its wealth of legible inscriptions describing a “sacred drama” involving Horus and the desert god, Seth. The Temple of Edfu was completely buried until the 1800s, when French Egyptologist Auguste Mariette rediscovered the site and helped preserve it.

The correct answer is Horus.
