Honorary transposition

Anticipation characterizes that the elements of the sentence are removed from their regular place and placed in a forward position: it is said to stand in anticipation. Anticipation appears in titles, royal names, and god’s names, known as honorary transposition.
For reasons of prestige, names for gods and kings and related words sometimes precede closely connected words, although they are actually read afterwards (this is termed more formally honorific transposition). Honorific transposition is particularly common in epithets and titles:
Beloved of Amun
mry Imn
Like Re
mi Ra
King’s advisor
rx nsw
Servant of the god
