) of Stephanus B. (s. v.), a town of Aegypt, in the Heptanomis, 20 miles above Memphis, on the left bank of the Nile, now called Bembe.
In the old editions of Pliny (5.29. s. 35
) we find a place called Pemma, belonging to the Nomads dwelling on the borders of Aegypt and Aethiopia; but Sillig, instead of “Cysten, Pemmam, Gadagalen,” reads “Cysten, Macadagalen.”
