The Gods of Ancient Egypt -- Pakhet


Patron of: inner strength, especially that of women.

Appearance: a woman with the head of a lioness.

Description: Pakhet in all likelihood was a combination of Bast and Sekhmet. As her cult was centered in Middle Egypt, between the cult areas of Bast and Sekhmet, this may be the case. Her attributes of both ferocity and femininity further lend strength to this conclusion.

Worship: Middle Egypt, primary temple near Beni Hassan.
