Description of Egypt

This chapter begins with some general remarks on the southern point of the ancient Delta, the canal of Ckalyoo'b, part of the ancient Pelusiac branch, and other ancient branches of the Nile. It contains little more than brief notices of the more interesting objects. The subjects are, indeed, scarcely worthy of detailed description. In Lower Egypt, there are several large towns; but one is a satisfactory specimen of all. Tthere are also vestiges of many ancient cities; but the ruins of the walls which surrounded the sacred edifices, and a few prostrate obelisks, or confused heaps of sculptured blocks of stone, are almost the only remaining antiquities. Knowing this to be the case, this chapter did not descend the branch of Dimya't, nor traverse the province of Esh-Shurckee'yeh; preferring to devote its time and attention to more interesting objects.

Keywords:   Delta, canal of Ckalyoo'b, Pelusiac branch, Dimya't, Esh-Shurckee'yeh
