The Falcons of Gebtu by Robert Cole

Per Bastet - There are no Temples in all of Egypt so pleasant to behold...
Men and women sail together in vast numbers. The women with castanets, the men pipe; singing and clapping the while. At any of the towns, the women call to the females of the place with abuse and some stand up uncovering themselves. When they reach Per Bastet, they celebrate the feast with abundant sacrifices. More grape-wine is consumed at this festival than in all the rest of the year. -Herodotus Festival of Bast, April 15th, 450 BC
