a Hamitic tribe descended from Mizraim (Gen. 10:13). Others
identify this word with Napata, the name of the city and
territory on the southern frontier of Mizraim, the modern Meroe,
at the great bend of the Nile at Soudan. This city was the royal
residence, it is said, of Queen Candace (Acts 8:27). Here there
are extensive and splendid ruins.
