Memphis

The site of the ancient memphis: a village and its cemetery.

"The Site of the Ancient Memphis: A Village and Its Cemetery." "Oriental Cairo: the city of the 'Arabian Nights." (J.B. Lippincott Company: Philadelphia andHurst&Blackett, Ltd.: London, 1911). p 334. From TIMEA

Founded around 3,100 BCE, and situated at the beginning point of the Nile Delta, this city was the first capital of a united Egypt, though it was likelyinhabited long before that. And even though the capital moved to Thebes, the city retained its importance and size; the ancient cemeteries stretch for 19 miles alongthe bank of the Nile, giving us an indication of the city’s immense population. The most significant ruins and statuary today are a colossus of Ramses II and analabaster sphinx. A temple to Ptah was excavated by William Flanders Petrie, but there is little left of it. Once surrounded by white walls, they eventually eroded,allowing the city to be covered with silt. Located just south of Cairo, it was in an excellent position to command both Lower and Upper Egypt, as is Cairo today.

Many mummified bullshad been pilfered from the temple, but one remained and is now in the Agricultural Museum of Egypt.
