SETH (/sɛθ/; also spelled Setesh, Sutekh, Setekh, or Suty) is a god of the desert, storms, disorder, violence and foreigners in ancient Egyptian religion. In Ancient Greek, the god’s name is given as Sēth (Σήθ). Set is not, however, a god to be ignored or avoided; he has a positive role where he is employed by Ra on his solar boat to repel the serpent of Chaos Apep. Set had a vital role as a reconciled combatant. He was lord of the red (desert) land where he was the balance to Horus’ role as lord of the black (soil) land. Set has also been classed as a Trickster deity who, as a god of disorder, resorts to deception to achieve bad ends.

“We’re going to take a little ride on the Solar Boat
Bring your scepter, bring your thunderbolt
We’ll see the eye in the canopy, the Morning star
The edge of the void, it’s not too far
We’ll see the source of the Nile, which is in Tibet
And maybe, we’ll see the Shanghai Express”

 The world`s largest exclusively solar-powered boat, the Swiss-flagged MS `Turanor PlanetSolar` passes the Corinth Canal, central Greece, 28 July 2014. The 31-meter-long catamaran had docked in Corinth for three days and will continue its journey to the Ermioni area to take part in an underwater archaeological project focused on underwater exploration off one of Europe`s oldest human occupation sites, the Franchthi cave in the Argolid, southeast Peloponnese.
