Sigrid-Eike Hoenes : Untersuchungen zu Wesen und Kult der Göttin Sachmet. - Bonn : Habelt, 1976. - ISBN : 3774912289; 9783774912281. - XVIII, 274 p.:

Seite 30 : ... Den gesicherten Zeugnissen nach wäre Bastet die ursprünglichere Gottheit gewesen und Sachmet erst sekundär als Verselbständigung eines Teilaspektes der Bastet entstanden. ...

Page 30 : ... According to the established testimony, Bastet was the original deity, and it was only in the second place that Sekhmet developed as a partial aspect of Bastet. ...

The known proofs for Mafdet and Bastet are older than the documents for Sakhmet. See also the book by Sigrid-Eike Hoenes or for example the entrys in "Lexikon der Ägyptologie" (Volumes : I - 1975 - Bastet - Col. 628 ff., III - 1980 - Mafdet - Col. 1132 ff. & V - 1984 - Sachmet - Col. 323 ff.).

Greetings, Lutz.
