This nome has also been called the “Occident” (imnty) and “Libya” (Amu). Other towns in this nome included Hut-ihet, (= good cattle?) and Kom Hamada. Under the reign of
the Ptolemies, Alexandria became the largest centre of culture and science in the immediate Mediterranean area.

or Sau (Sais) Amun? (Sais)”
Sap[i]-qema? (Gr. Cult centre of
Prosopis?) Sobek, Isis and

Also called “Southern Shield”. Nomes 4 and 5 of Lower Egypt are named as southern and northern parts of the Neith province, and it is thought that these two provinces were
inscribed (on the White Chapel) as one entry, although they are seen as two different nomes by most scholars. The delineations of “north” and “south” were added at some time
after the Middle Kingdom. However, the Neith nome was known in the Old Kingdom as one administrative area, with Sais being the major town. During the Greek occupation,
this nome was divided into three areas, two of which were Sais and Naukratis (see also LE 7 below where it is thought that the town which became Naukratis was [at one time]
included in the west Harpoon nome). The province was called Prosopites (after the division of the Neith nome) and was situated between the two main branches of the Nile.
