- God (male deity)
A god, as a male deity, contrasts with female deities, or "goddesses". While the term 'goddess' specifically refers to a female deity, the plural 'gods' can be applied to all gods collectively, regardless of gender.
When Ancient Egyptian religion developed closer to monotheism, it was Amun, a male god, who rose to the most prominent place. War gods were, like the rulers of the pantheon, typically male, too; Ares/Mars and Toutatis are obvious examples.
