Description of Egypt

Jason Thompson

American University in Cairo Press

The town of Ckin'e, which occupies the site of the ancient Cenopolis, is about four miles above the village of Den'dar'a, on the opposite side of the river. A little higher, on the opposite side of the river, about a mile and a half from the bank, is Ckooft, of Ckift. This area contains extensive remains of the great city of Coptos. These remains consist of little more than mounds of rubbish, among which are many ruined houses, solidly built, but of unburnt brick. There are considerable remains of walls which surrounded the town; apparently of Arab work. The small town of Ckoo's is about five miles above Ckooft, on the same side of the river. It is situated at the distance of about a mile from the river, upon extensive mounds of rubbish, which cover the site of Apollinopolis Parva.
