Apis Bull [Astro*Index]

An ancient Egyptian religious cult, in which both bulls and cows were bred selectively to perpetuate the appearance of a "star" on the skin of the animals. Although the star might appear on any part of the animal, those with the marking on the forehead (particularly between, or covering an eye) were given preference.
