Egyptian mythology - The Egyptian cat-headed goddess, Bastet
was strictly a solar deity until the arrival of Greek influence on
Egyptian society, when she became a lunar goddess due to the Greeks
associating her with their Artemis. Bastet was originally portrayed as
either a wild desert cat or as a lioness. Additionally, Bastet was one
of the "Eyes of Ra", the title of an "avenger" god who is sent out
specifically to lay waste to the enemies of Egypt and her gods.
