In ancient Egypt the god Horus had multiple forms; one of his forms was Heryma'at.
Prince Khaemwaset was a son of Pharaoh Ramesses III.
On a wall of the tomb of Khaemwaset is a depiction of de god Heryma'at,who symbolizes the deceased prince.
Is the following sentence correct :
Heryma'at is the personification of the deceased prince Khaemwaset.

    Khaemwaset was already a person, so he can't be "personified." Perhaps "the symbolic representation / embodiment of the deceased prince Khaemwaset."

    It is not certain that Heryma'at was a form of the god Horus.
    The French egyptologist Bernard Bruyère argue that Heryma'at is a form of the god Horus.
    Is it better to note:
    Heryma'at would be a form of the god Horus and is the embodiment of the deceased Prince Khaemwaset.
