Am'mon, an Egyptian god, connected by the Greeks and Romans with Zeus or Jupiter. The Egyptians called him Amen, the hidden god, and in the earliest times represented him as a man, but in later times as a ram or a man with a ram's head. He had famous temples in Thebes, Egypt, and on the oasis of Ammon in the Libyan desert and in many other places.
