Banebdjedet is an ancient Egyptian ram god who mythologically represented the Ba of Osiris. In the Late Period this association was widened, as he came to represent the four Bas of the sun god (Osiris, Geb, Shu and Ra-Atum) and was therefore often depicted with four ram heads.

Banebdjedet's cult was centered at Mendes and included the worship and burial of sacred rams.
