She Protected the Home from Evil Spirits and Disease, Especially Diseases Associated with Women and Children. as with Many Egyptian Deities, She Also Played a Role in the Afterlife as a Guide and Helper to the Dead Although This Was Not One of Her Primary Duties. She Was the Daughter of the Sun God Ra and Is Associated with the Concept of the Eye of Ra (The All-Seeing Eye) and the Distant Goddess (A Female Deity Who Leaves Ra and Returns to Bring Transfromation)MEANING OF BASTET'S NAMEHer Name Was Originally B'sst Which Became Ubaste, Then Bast, Then Bastet; the Meaning of This Name Is Not Known Or, at Least, Not Universally Agreed Upon. Geraldine Pinch Claims That "Her Name Probably Means She of the Ointment Jar" as She Was Associated with Protection and Protective Ointments (115). the Greeks Associated Her Closely with Their Goddess Artemis and Believed That, as Artemis Had a Twin Brother (Apollo) So Should Bast. They Associated Apollo with Horus, the Son of Isis (Heru-Sa-Aset) and So Called the Goddess Known as Bast Ba'aset (Soul of Isis) Which Would Be the Literal Translation of Her Name with the Addition of the Second 'T' to Denote the Feminine (Aset Being Among the Egyptian Names for Isis).Bastet Was Extremely Popular Throughout Egypt with Both Men and Women from the 2nd Dynasty (C. 2890 - C. 2670 BCE) Onward with Her Cult Centered at the City of Bubastis from at Least the 5th Century Bce. She Was First Represented as a Woman with the Head of a Lioness and Closely Associated with the Goddess Sekhmet But, as That Deity's Iconography Depicted Her as Increasingly Aggressive, Bastet's Images Softened Over Time to Present More of a Daily Companion and Helper Than Her Earlier Forms as Savage Avenger.
