Bast (I)

P Sufenas Virius Lupus

The Eye of Re
when she was in Lower Egypt

Lady of fire
of the protection of hearth and home

Associate of Wadjet
the ever-alert serpent

Merged with Mut
of vulture’s enfolding wings

Of gentle Hathor’s herd
matron of finery

Wife of Anubis
provider of embalming

Mother of Maahes
good-nurturer of warriors

Circle of the moon
in silver night shining

Mother of kittens
across ages and lifespans

Perfumed protectress
of the ointment jar

Bast the devourer
guardian of the doorway
