Two magic formulas taken from a medical text dating from the beginning of the New Kingdom refer to a god whom the Egyptians called “He from the foreign countries” apparently a divinity linked to a federation of tribes belonging to the Shosou group. This god was worshipped in a foreign land called Ouân, somewhere in the region of Edom. This god unique and particularly violent was identified in magic Egyptian phraseology as the god Bebon, the sethian form of the god Thot.
