Description of Egypt

This chapter describes the modern village of Armen't, which is about half a mile from the river Nile. The remains of this ancient town are very extensive: they consist of mounds of broken pottery, bricks, etc, among which are an interesting temple, and some other relics. On the opposite side of the Nile, a little above Armen't, is the village of To'd, situated upon mounds of rubbish, which mark the site of the ancient Tuphium. A little higher is Es-Sa'limee'yeh, the village of the sheykh Ahh'mad, which is known for a bold imposter and rebel who, in 1824, gained to himself a party of between twenty and thirty thousand men. Little ahead of this lie Gebeley'n, or “two mountains.” These are two oblong hills of rock, both on the western side. Finally, this chapter talks about the town and temple of Is'na (Latopolis) and the temple of Contra Latopolis (opposite Is'na).

Keywords:   Armen't, To'd, Tuphium, sheykh Ahh'mad, Gebeley'n
