yes, some do and some eat odd things, such as the Egyptian god Osiris, who would only eat the hearts of the dead, but most gods would drink wines, and they would eat things su…ch as: pork, grapes, lettuce, bread, fish, the list goes on

Well, the ancient Egyptians were polytheistic so they believed in more than one god but here are a few: Ra (or Amun-Ra), Shu, Bast, Bes, Anubis, Apophis, Sobek, Seqet, Khonsu,… Babi, Neckbet, Tawaret, Hathor, Heket, Khepri, Khnum, Mekhit, Ptah, Sekhmet, Thoth Osiris, Horus, Nut, Geb, Set, and Nepthys.
There are likely more than 2000 but those names have yet to be all recorded.
There were many but you are probably refering to the falcon-headed god Horus.
A count of all the ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses has yet to be reached, we are still discovering things about Egypt.
Well, Hathor is the cow goddess. ========= Answer: The question refers to an Egyptian god, which rules out goddesses. The answer is the Apis (hieroglyphs: hpw), a bull-calf… god worshipped in the area of Memphis. This name appears in very early Egyptian texts but its origin is very mysterious so very little is known about it until the New Kingdom; much was written in the Late Period by Greek and Roman observers. A black bull-calf with very specific markings was seen as the earthly incarnation of the Apis; each one was eventually sacrificed and a new Apis was then found. Each calf was given an elaborate and costly burial in a purpose-built tomb, many of which have been discovered. The cult of the Apis was so strong in the Ptolomaic period that the Macedonian Greek rulers of Egypt absorbed it into their own religion - but as a man rather than a bull calf, becoming known in Greek as Serapis. The worship of this "invented" god continued until 385 AD under Roman rule.
Nekhebet is the name of the Egyptian God of chickens. There were 2000 gods worshipped during the ancient Egyptian empire.
You can pronounce them any way you like and you will be wrong every time, because we do not accurately know how any ancient Egyptian words were pronounced. Hieroglyphs only …record consonants, not vowels (exactly as in ancient Arabic, Phoenician and Hebrew) - the people at the time knew which vowels to include, but that knowledge is lost today. Many people pretend to know how to say the names of gods and goddesses (for example pronouncing Seth as Set) but they are fantasising and misleading others. The name of that particular god is written in hieroglyphs as stx (s+t+kh) and it was definitely not pronounced as either Seth or Set. Isis and Osiris are both later Greek forms of the real Egyptian names, which are written Ast and wsir in hieroglyphs, where the A and i represent consonant sounds not present in English. Bes, Geb, Anubis, Taweret, Horus, Bastet, Neith, Thoth, Hathor, Amun, Tefnut and Mut (and the names of hundreds more) are all very modern guesses at how the names might have been said - and all are incorrect. Those names are written in hieroglyphs as bs, gb, inpw, twrt, Hr, bAstt, nt, DHwty, Hwt Hr, imn, tfnt, mwt. Scholars need to be able to write and talk about these deities so having more pronounceable names like Thoth (as opposed to DHwty) is convenient and widely accepted, but always entirely inaccurate.
Ra, he was the sun god who was thought to be the head
All the Egyptian gods and goddesses have yet to be numbered and named.
