In religio-mythology, Amen-Ra is an 18th dynasty (1549-1292BC) conceived supreme god syncretism of the of the Egyptian gods Amen, the chief god of Thebes powerful during the 12th dynasty (1991-1803BC), and Ra, the chief sun god of Heliopolis, who was powerful during the 5th dynasty (2498-2345BC).

Judaic recension
Of note, during the Judaic recension (c.500BC) (see: supreme god timeline), the supreme god Amen-Ra was reformulated, monotheistically, into the story where Ra became Abraham and Amen became the name said at the end of prayers.

Ptolemaic period
In the Ptolemaic period, Alexander the great tried to mold Persian, Egyptian, and Greek religions into one new religion by blending Zeus with Amen-Ra to make the god Zeus-Amen, but this did take well, and was a short-lived (short-existed) religious reform, lasting only a few centuries.
