Mendes I

    By

    Situated in the Nile Delta about 90 miles north of Cairo, Mendes, covering some 450 acres, was occupied from the early Old Kingdom through the Christian Era ca. AD 800. During the Twenty-ninth Dynasty fourth century BC, the city became Egypt's capital. Mendes I brings together all known maps of the site and its environs: early examples based on the descriptions of Herodotus and Pliny the Geographer, maps of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century explorers, and maps produced expressly for this publication on the basis of the authors' excavations and surveys at the site, as well as aerial photographs. Illustrated with 40 plates.
