A very ancient city of Lower Egypt, Numbers 13:22 , on the east side of the Tanitic arm of the Nile, and called by the Greeks Tanis, now San. It was a royal city, Isaiah 19:11,13; 30:4 , and gave its name to the level country around it, in which were wrought the first mighty works of God by Moses, Psalm 78:12,43 . Vast heaps of ruined temples, obelisks, sphinxes, etc., attest the ancient grandeur of this city, and its ruin according to prophecy, Ezekiel 30:14 .
