Bast, or Bastet was the Egyptian goddess of cats, war, protection, family and music, worshiped as early as the 2nd Dynasty (2890 BC). She was represented as a woman with a cat's head, or as a full cat (or in earlier times, a lioness). In earlier times she was chiefly a warrior goddess, but over time as the Egyptian religion unified and Sekhmet began taking her place, during the 22nd Dynasty (c. 945–715 BC), Bast had transformed from a lioness warrior deity into a major protector deity represented as a cat. Her main center of worship was the city of Bubastis.
