Other Names:
Mihos, Maahes

(G/R Mihos) - "True Before Her(?)" A fairly obscure Name of Netjer depicted as a lion-headed man and worshipped especially in Upper Kemet and into Nubia (perhaps through confusion with the Nubian lion-god Apedemak) in later times, Maahes is often said to be the son of Bast and Ptah, and is sometimes considered another son of the Triad of Mennefer (beside Nefertem and sometimes Imhotep). He is depicted carrying a large knife and is invoked to protect the innocent and to punish transgressors of Ma'at.
