PEME (It. Ant. p. 156), probably the same as the Pempte (Πέμπτη) 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.”
