Originally a god in his own right by Egyptian lore, the great bull Mnevis (or Merwer) joined the cult of Ra, and holds the disc of the sun between his horns. An intermediary between Ra and his priests and oracles, he was well esteemed at Heliopolis.

CoyoteAny relation to Apis?
AlienMnevis and Apis have a few similarities, most evident being the solar disc, though Apis has also had a moon. Some believe Mnevis is one of Apis' forms of presentation, but it's possible they're more or less separately developed, and afterwards attempted to 'merge'.
