All the Egyptologists and the European scholar's opinion is that (D-30) was one of the more important glyphs in his name, and although it was technically a variation on the glyph for two arms raised in the prayer, it also resembles a two-headed snake, and so Nehebkau became depicted in art as a snake with two heads (occasionally with only one). As a two-headed snake, he was viewed as fierce, being able to attack from two directions, and not having to fear as much confrontations.
|Nothing is correct in the above description. It is neither two-headed snake nor the two arms raised in the prayer. The hieroglyph is based on Sanskrit homonyms word Na-th-h ukFk% means 'A rope passed through the nose of a draft ox or any pet. The other meanings, for it was mainly used, are 'a lord, master, protector, leader, God, husband. This hieroglyph was used for 'god'.|
