Case File: Bast vs. Sekhmet

Police Reports

Case description: Bast was accused of impersonating the goddess Sekhmet.

Case status: Case dismissed. Bast and Sekhmet do look very similar as lioness goddesses, but there are ways to tell them apart. Smart scribes can tell the difference between the two goddesses by looking at their headdresses or the hieroglyphs of their names, which are quite different. Sekhmet's name has an arrow-shaped scepter in it, and Bast's begins with a perfume jar.
