In Egypt, he was often understood as a daemon.[108] Inscriptions indicate that Antinous was seen primarily as a benevolent deity, who could be turned to aid his worshipers and cure them of ailments.[109][110] He was also seen as a conqueror of death, with his name and image often being included in coffins.[111] In the west, Antinous was associated with the Celtic sun-god Belenos.[112]
