In a key episode in the conflict, Set sexually abuses Horus.
Isis retaliates by putting Horus's semen on lettuce-leaves that Set eats.During the Late Period, Set is depicted as a donkey or as having a donkey's head.The earliest representations of what might be the Set animal comes from a tomb dating to the Naqada I phase of the Predynastic Period (3790 BC–3500 BC), though this identification is uncertain.In the earliest account of this episode, in a fragmentary Middle Kingdom papyrus, the sexual encounter begins when Set asks to have sex with Horus, who agrees on the condition that Set will give Horus some of his strength.The encounter puts Horus in danger, because in Egyptian tradition semen is a potent and dangerous substance, akin to poison.
