Kashta (before 746 BC)

King of the Twenty-fifth Dynasty. It has been suggested that his name means 'the Kushite' - 'the Nubian'. Kashta was king of Napata: in his reign for the first time the kingdom of Napata began to make its presence felt in Egypt, where the Napatan kings come to represent the Twenty-fifth in the sequence of dynasties.
