Mihos is the son of Bastet or, more rarely, Sekhmet and Atem-Re, was a local lion god at Taremu, Greek Leontopolis, known since the New Kingdom in Ancient Egypt.
He was depicted as as a lion or a man with a lion's head, wearing a kilt and various headdresses such as a sun-disk on a Roman period stela and often grasping a knife and described as a fierce eyed lion...
He was a god of war and was associated in Greek writings with storms and darkness.
He was a sun-god, embodying the scorching summer heat, and supported Re in his nightly struggle with Apophis.
However, Maahes was rarely referred to by name.
Rather he was usually referred to by his most common epithet, "The lord of the Massacre".
He was given a number of other bloodcurdling epithets including; "Wielder of the Knife", "The Scarlet lord" (referring to the blood of his victims) and "lord of Slaughter". Yet, he was not seen as a force of evil....
He punished those who violated the rules of Ma´at and so promoted order and justice.
Thus he was also known as the "Avenger of Wrongs" and "Helper of the Wise Ones".
