Sekhmet was the goddess of war. She was featured as a woman with the head of a lioness. According to one tale of the gods, when the mortals of the world became too unruly she was created to destoy them. She devoured every human she came across until the gods took pity on the mortals and stopped her. It was also believed that she protected the pharoah during battle.
