Boubastis (also known, in Arabic, as Tell Basta or, in Egyptian, as Per-Bast) was an ancient city in Egypt. It was located in the Nile Delta and served as the capital of the Am-Khent nome (the Bubastite nome), which was the 18th nome of Lower Egypt. It has been identified with the Biblical Pi-Beseth.
