Mentioned in Pyramids, Bin is the supreme god of Djelibeybi... or at least one of the supreme gods (there are at least 9).

Annotation

In Semitic languages (Arabic and Hebrew), Bin means son of.

The undisputed supreme god in later Egyptian mythology was Horus, who was son of the previous supreme deities, Isis and Osiris. Horus was acclaimed as Egypt's great hope, who would come into his might and majesty and utterly defeat the god, Seth the evil deceiver, ushering in a new period of peace and prosperity for Egypt.
