Mendes, Goat of(religion, spiritualism, and occult)
A name often given the Baphomet figure supposedly worshiped by the Knights Templar and frequently portrayed as a half-goat, half-human figure. The name comes from the goat worshiped in ancient Egypt at Mendes, which was said to fornicate with its female worshipers.
The Goat of Mendes became the symbol, if not the object of worship, of many
occult groups, usually those with Satanic leanings.
