Default Re: "EGYPT", is Nowhere in The Bible.

Now you'll notice, the earliest map of "Jerusalem" (from Israel's own site), doesn't appear untill about 1500 after Solomon (wow, and how WRONG has our modern science, got 1500 y.o. 'history!), and around the time Islam was invented by Counterfeit 'Christian' Rome (The Whore who rides The Beast), who already relied on the "tourist trade' to their regions of control.

JERUSALEM IN THE MADABA MOSAIC MAP
The Madaba Map is the oldest detailed cartographic document in the word. Made about the year 565 CE from over two million colored stone cubes, the map formed the mosaic floor of a Byzantine church in the biblical town of
Medeba, today Madaba in Jordan. It depicted the Holy land from Lebanon in the north to Egypt in the south. Jerusalem, the Holy City, constitutes the earliest urban mapping known.

ISRAEL IN THE TABULA PEUTINGERIAN
The Peutinger Map was discovered in Germany in 1507 as a long and narrow parchment scroll. It is clear? that the map was made in the 12th or? 13th century as an apparently exact? copy of an ancient road map, now lost, which portrayed the Roman Empire in the fourth century, with paved roads clearly visible. Jerusalem is prominently marked "Formerly? called Hierusalem, [now]? Helya capitolina", with the Mount of Olives nearby.

THE LAND OF ISRAEL IN IBRAHIM IBN MUHAMMAD ISTAKHRI'S MAP OF SYRIA (ca. 952)
The 10th and 11th centuries were the era of the "Atlas of Islam" - collections of maps which usually included representations of 17 Islamic countries. The Arabs never regarded the Land of Israel, which they called Falastin, as a distinct geographical or political unit, and mapped it as an integral part of ash-Sham, Syria, as in the example shown here. Jerusalem is represented by one of the circles in the upper part of the map (which is directed towards the south-west and is named Bayt al-Maqdas (Hebrew: Bet haMiqdash, the Temple).
