Buto in Egyptian mythology, was a goddess especially worshipped in the city of the same name in the delta of the Nile, where she had the most magnificent temple. When Isis was persecuted by Typhon, she gave both her children, Bubastis and Horus, to this goddess. As the latter correspond to the Greek Diana and Apollo, so Buto appears as their mother Latona, She had an oracle in Buto, and the Egyptians relate that the city could move from place to place, in order to hide Horus and Bubastis. Every Egyptian deity has its sacred animal: that of Buto was the mouse. SEE MAUT,
