The local god of the Giza necropolis during the Old Kingdom was Sokar...

Catherine Graindorge (p.337, TAGS Oxford Univ. Press 2002):

"The name of this divinity (Eg., skr; Gr., Sokaris), according to a hypothetical etymology based on Coffen Text Spell 816 and a twelfth dynasty papyrus, is derived from sk r ("cleaning of the mouth"), a word used in the context of the Opening of the Mouth ceremony, in which Sokar plays a role. Such word play, does not, however, constitute a true etymology. Nor (pace Brovarski 1987) does the name appear to be related to "Saqqara," which probably comes from the of a Berber tribe, the Beni Saqqar"..."In the pyramid texts, Sokar is called a native of Rosetjau, a site near the Sphinx of Giza, but ultimately indicating any necropolis, and of Pedju (-she), the lake of Abusir."

Sokar's barge was adorned with either a falcon or bull head on the ships bow.
