[Sorry about the really basic question. But I wouldn't know who else to ask.]

Thanks in advance.

If you should mean this representation :

then it is Amun Ra "Lord of the thrones of the two countries, residing in the holy mountain" and his wife, the goddess Mut.

That's from the Nubian pharaoh Taharqa's tombs in Sudan, if I'm not mistaken. The god is associated with the mountain Jebel (or Gebel) Barkal. The two cobras on the king's brow are typical for Nubian pharaohs. The real carving actually shows a sloping side of the mountain coming down below the large cobra (above the god's staff) which represents a spur of rock on the real mountain which does somewhat resemble the uraeus.

This is the original carving:

No, because the glyphs clearly identify the ram-headed deity as Amun, as Lutz indicated.
