Aten was the supreme god in the Atenist cult of Egyptian mythology.

The Pharaoh Amenhotep IV changed his name to Akhenaten and established the worship of the sun disk Aten as supreme deity, discarding the polytheistic pantheon established preceding his rule. His decision made him the enemy of the High Priests and, after his death, the worship of Aten ceased and the ancient pantheon returned.
