BȝSTT > BASTET

This name derives from the Ancient Egyptian “bȝstt”, meaning “she of the ointment jar”. Bastet is the name commonly used by scholars today to refer to a feline goddess of ancient Egyptian religion who was worshipped at least since the second dynasty. From the third millennium BC, when Bastet begins to appear in our record, she is depicted as either a fierce lioness or a woman with the head of a lion. Images of Bast were created from a local stone, named alabaster today.
