Abstract [en]

Four different place-names from the north-central Delta are discussed in the article: (1) thename of the town of Disūq, suggested here to derive from an ancient Egyptian expression,possibly ‘the land of Sobek’; (2) Diminka, which may be a compound meaning ‘the new landof Nechao’; (3) idb.wy rx.ty, whose westward location seems supported by a passage in theTemple of Edfu; and finally (4) srn, a hapax, read on a Saite donation stela (Uppsala VM 3208),where the geographical context indicates a location near Buto.
