Bastet was so popular that, in BCE, when Cambyses II of Persia invaded Egypt, he made use of the goddess to force the Egyptian's surrender. She personified the playfulness, grace, affection, and cunning of a cat as well as the fierce power of a lioness. Indeed, much confusion occurred with subsequent generations; the identity of Bastet slowly merged among the Greeks during their occupation of Egypt, who sometimes named her Ailuros Greek for cat , thinking of Bastet as a version of Artemis , their own moon goddess. The "slaughterers of Bastet" were said to inflict plague and other disasters on humanity. A festival for Bastet was probably no more wild or inebriated than other festivals, notably those for Hathor, whose epithets include "Lady of Drunkenness".
