Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary
or PUT, the posterity of Phut, the son of Ham, Genesis 10:6 . Calmet is of opinion that Phut, the third son of Ham, peopled either the canton of Phtemphu, Phtemphti, Phtembuti, of Pliny and Ptolemy, whose capital was Thara, in Lower Egypt, inclining toward Libya; or the canton called Phtenotes, of which Buthas was the capital. The prophets often speak of Phut. In the time of Jeremiah, Jeremiah 46:9 , Phut was under the obedience of Necho, king of Egypt. Nahum 3:9 , reckons this people in the number of those who ought to come to the assistance of No-Ammon, or Diospolis.
