The horn of the Ancient Egyptian God Amun, or an ancient cephalopod? Amun (also known as Ammon, Amen, and Amun-Ra) was an Ancient Egyptian god depicted with the head of a ram, and when certain cephalopod fossils were found by ancient Egyptians, they were called “Ammonites” due to some species resemblance to Amun’s horns.
This ammonite is Ammonitoceras from the Cretaceous era 110 million years ago, recovered in Russia. It sits on an iron display stand which is 26” long and 20” tall. The Ammonite itself is 23” by 18.5”, and is 7” thick.
