Scythian and Sarmatian women may have been the legendary Amazons—mounted, armed women warriors. Tabiti was venerated by these nomadic cultures who traversed a wide swathe of Europe and Asia on horseback. They left no writing, and very little is now known about them. Much of what is known is based on interpretation of artifacts, including their incredibly beautiful, finely wrought gold jewelry in the form of stylized animals. Tabiti is the Lady of the Beasts, guardian of animals. She is a fire goddess, lady of the hearth. Some scholars theorize that when her people stopped riding, Tabiti went to live in a little hut deep in a Russian birch forest where she eventually emerged as Baba Yaga.
Tabiti may be a woman or a half-woman, half-snake. She has long hair, possibly flame red.
Tabiti is portrayed in the company of beasts.
Ares; Baba Yaga; Bendis; Lady of the Beasts
