Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Ezekiel, xvii: 17.)--'Neither shall Pharaoh with
his mighty army and great company make for him in the war, by casting up mounts, and building forts, to cut off many persons.'
This castle has nothing to do with Babylon the Great, for it is in Egypt, and is used to illustrate this verse simply because
Pharaoh, king of Egypt, is represented as building forts and casting up mounts. This is a relic of the town which was built
by Cambyses, B.C. 525. It is upon the site occupied by Old Cairo, where the epistle of Saint Peter was written. The fort itself
belongs to the Roman period. Here was stationed one of the three legions of the Roman army. The masonry resembles very much
that which we find in the palace of the Caesars in Rome, and also in the temple of Minerva and the Roman Pantheon." See 5143BAI/LVi61CAJS
