Smith's Bible Dictionary
Path'ros. (region of the south). A part of Egypt, and a Mizraite tribe, whose people were called Pathrusim. In the list of the Mizraites, the Pathrusim occur, after the Naphtuhim, and before the Caluhim; the latter being followed, by the notice of the Philistines, and by the Caphtorim. Genesis 10:13-14; 1 Chronicles 1:12.
Pathros is mentioned in the prophecies of Isaiah, Isaiah 11:11; Jeremiah, Jeremiah 44:1; Jeremiah 44:15; and Ezekiel. Ezekiel 29:14; Ezekiel 30:13-18. It was, probably, part or all, of upper Egypt, and we may trace its name, in the Pathyrite name, in which Thebes was situated.
