He is also revered as the Neter of time.
Khonsu also had given titles such as Embracer, Pathfinder, and Defender as he was thought to watch over night travelers. Khonsu was invoked to protect against wild animals, increase male virility, and to aid with healing. It was believed that Khonsu cause the crescent moon to shine, cattle to become fertile, women to conceive and every throat of the people were filled with fresh air.
His appearance portrayed as a young man with the royal sidelock and punt beard hair (worn by Kemetic children), wearing lunar headdress that shows the disk of a full moon cradled in a crescent new moon. He holds the crook and flail. Occasionally, Khonsu also depicted as a falcon headed man wearing wearing the crescent of the new moon subtending the disc of the full moon on his head.
