Naylamp, Naymlap or Nanlap is a mythological character from ancient Peru. According to stories collected by the spanish chroniclers, it came from the sea, bringing civilization to the Lambayecan lands in the northern Peru, where he founded a kingdom or manor in which several kings succeeded, before being conquered by the Chimues. In pre Columbian art he is represented, with anthropomorphic and zoomorphic features combined with birds. Its name would means, in the Moche league, "water bird or hen" or another version of the andean god of water.
