The Egyptian Lion
The ancient Greek historian Aelian wrote: "In Egypt, they worship lions, and there is a city called after them. The lions have temples and numerous spaces in which to roam; the flesh of oxen is supplied to them daily and the lions eat to the accompaniment of song in the Egyptian language." Egypt means Lion but was called Hwt-Ka-Ptah and Kemet by the ancient Egyptians.
