Egypt: Mihos - Son of Bastet


Mihos was the lion god and son of Bastet called Miysis by the Greeks. His local roots were at Leontopolis (modern Tell el-Muqdam) in nome eleven of Lower Egypt in the Eastern Delta. Osorkon III of the 22nd Dynasty erected a temple to him at Bubastis, the town sacred to the god's mother. Mihos' name is also found in amuletic papyri of the late New Kingdom.
