Phibeseth

(fi bee' ssehth) Place name derived from the Egyptian, “house of Bastet,” a goddess represented as a cat (Ezekiel 30:17 ). Bastet (Greek Boubastos ) was located on the right shore of the old Tanite branch of the Nile about forty-five miles northeast of Cairo. Bastet served as capital of the eighteenth nome (administrative district) and, during the Twenty-Second and Twenty-Third Dynasties (940-745 B.C.), as capital of a fragmented Egyptian Empire. The site is identified with modern tell Basta.
