mythology, Petbe was the god of revenge,
worshipped in the area around Akhmin, in
central Egypt. His name translates as Sky-Ba,
roughly meaning Soul of the Sky, or Mood
of the sky. However, Petbe may instead be
a semitic deity introduced by immigrant
workers from the Levant, with his name being
a corruption of the hybrid phrase Pet-Ba'al,
meaning Lord of the sky. Early Christianitians
compared Petbe to the Greek god Cronos.
