Mythical Benben Stone: The Landing Site of Egyptian God Atum
The Benben stone is an object that is found in the mythology of ancient Egypt. This mythical capstone that sits atop pyramids and obelisks is said to be the primeval hill on which the god Atum first landed. The god looked around, and realised that there was nothing around him but darkness and chaos, and that he was all alone. Desiring companionship, Atum began the work of creation.
