In Ancient Egyptian religious iconography and literature, the turtle can be among marginal creatures invoked to defend a person, as on the objects illustrated below. However it is often the enemy of the sun-god Re. This negative position is already announced in the Coffin Texts: 'If you tell me to eat this (excrement), then Re will eat turtle'.
