Transcript 366 PICTURESQUE PALESTLNE. with pebbles and the like, but those of the buildings of the Theban empire, like Zoan, were bound with straw. Thus the records of the monuments and the practice of to-day offer parallels to the story of the oppression of the Israelites related in the Hebrew records. At first the capital of Joseph's Shepherd-Pharaoh, and then the favoured residence of Rameses, Zoan enjoyed a third period of prosperity under the Twenty- first or Tanite Dynasty, which was related by marriage and treaty with Solomon; but its place was gradually usurped by other cities, and now there remains of all its splendour only a squalid fishing village which retains in its name San the old Egyptian Za'n and Hebrew Zoan, and exhibits in its brawny inhabitants a Semitic type distinct from the Egyptian, and undoubtedly descended from the Hyksos and perhaps their Hebrew colonists. Instead of the beautiful city described by the Egyptian poet, we see only the huts of San and the great mounds which mark the place where two splendid temples of red syenite, adorned with numerous obelisks and sphinxes and surrounded by palaces and gardens and all that went to make " the very secret of the joys of life," once tempted Sesostris to leave his Theban capital and dwell in the field of Zoan. " Not even at Thebes," says Ebers, "are so many monuments of hard granite to be found ; but of all the magnificent buildings that once stood here not even the ground plan can be re- coenised. The great sanctuary erected by Rameses IL has crumbled into dust. Granite OBELISK OF HELIOPOLIS, UUU Formed of red granite ; it has been so much encroached upon by deposits of mud that a consider- nillars with Oalm-leaf Capitals, able portion of its base is now buried. pilldl \> -- "■»*& g£5- ^ fi?A^ 3
