Pathros


Path’ros (region of the south), a part of Egypt, and a Mizraite tribe whose people were called Pathrusim. In the list of the Mizraites the Pathrusim occur after the Naphtuhim and before the Casluhim; the latter being followed by the notice of the Philistines and by the Caphtorim. Gen. 10:13, 14; 1 Chron. 1:12. Pathros is mentioned in the prophecies of Isaiah, Isa. 11:11, Jeremiah, Jer. 44:1, 15, and Ezekiel. Ezek. 29:14; 30:13-18. It was probably part or all of upper Egypt, and we may trace its name in the Pathyrite nome, in which Thebes was situated.
