The name “Mendes goat” derives from a connection Levi made between the Templar Baphomet, the Goat of the witch’s Sabbat (as depicted in popular art of the time), and the Egyptian god Ammon, of Mendes, Egypt. According to Levi, an emblem of fertility and sexual freedom. Levi’s connection was spurious-the God in question was represented by a ram, not a goat- but the confusion has persisted.
