Description of Egypt

American University in Cairo Press

There is no village adjacent to the temples of Ab'oo Sim'bil, nor even space for a small town; but a little above this spot, the mountains on the same side recede a little from the river, and there is a narrow tract of cultivated land along the bank, with a village called Beyla'nee. This chapter describes the Rock-temple opposite Beyla'nee. It talks about the ruins of a temple at Sir'reh Ghur'bee. It then discusses the remains of two temples a little below Wa'dee Hhal'fa. It describes Arckee'n. Just above Arckee'n is a small, cultivated island. A narrow, fertile tract, which borders the river on the eastern side as far as the northernmost island of the Second Cataracts, commences a little below the island which this mentions.

Keywords:   Ab'oo Sim'bil, Beyla'nee, Sir'reh Ghur'bee, Wa'dee Hhal'fa, Arckee'n
