(Ptah-tatenen) - "Rising Land" The deified embodiment of "the first land" of the creation, the "Island from the Dawn of Time" which rose from the Nun at the Self-Created One's command, Ta-tenen is both an earth-Netjer and a literal form of the creator. Possibly in a play on words, Ta-tenen is sometimes written as Ptah-tatenen and called the "high god" of Mennefer. He is depicted as a man wearing the striped nemes-headdress worn by all kings.
