MAFDET is the Egyptian Goddess of execution, worshipped as a destroyer of snakes and scorpions. She is depicted as either a mongoose or a feline, usually either a cat or a panther. She protects the king and the sun God Re from dangers with her knife-like claws and teeth. Mafdet was also seen as an instrument of punishment; she appears in scenes of the final judgment in the capacity of punisher or executioner, and is sometimes portrayed as a cat running up an executioner's staff. Her name, which means "she who runs swiftly," is also seen as MAFTET, and her epithets include LADY OF THE HOUSE OF LIFE, SLAYER OF SERPENTS, and the GREAT CAT.
