Description of Egypt

American University in Cairo Press

The large village of Er-Reyremoo'n, which is situated a little above the site of Antinoe, on the opposite side of the Nile, may be called the port of the town of Mel'low'ee. A little further away, there is a site of Hermopolis Magna. Within the mounds, towards the south, is the large village of Ash'moo'ney'n, or Oosh'moo'ney'n, which was once a flourishing city; as its ruined mosque and some of the older houses seem to testify. Furthermore, this chapter describes Mel'low'ee, which is a moderately large and populous town, containing numerous shops and mosques; but situated at an inconvenient distance from the river. Adjacent to the village of Et-Tell is the site of a very large ancient town; of which there are considerable remains. Finally, this chapter talks about the town of Menfeloo't, which is situated on the western bank of the Nile.
