One of the cities built by the children of Israel for Pharaoh in Egypt, during their servitude, Exodus 1:11 . This is probably the Pathumos mentioned by Herodotus, which he places near Pi-beseth and the Pelusiac arm of the Nile, not far from the canal made by the kings Necho and Darius to join the Red Sea with the Nile.
