Description of Egypt

Jason Thompson

American University in Cairo Press

A grove of palm-trees extends along a well-cultivated, though narrow tract on the southern side of the river, immediately above Ed-Dirr. The shore opposite Ed-Dirr is rocky, but not much elevated: a little higher, the rocky barrier on that side diverges from the river, and leaves a wide, cultivated plain. This district is called To'ma's. This chapter gives a striking account of the scenery between Ed-Dir'r and Ibree'm. It talks about the district of Ibree'm, and the ancient grotto there. It describes the Sepulchral grotto on the opposite side of the river and the old town of Ibree'm and other ancient grottoes. It also discusses the voyage of the author thence to Ab'oo Sim'bil.

Keywords:   Ed-Dirr, To'ma's, Ibree'm, ancient grotto, Sepulchral grotto
