__|a  Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Leviticus, xiv.)--We give here a picture of the oldest mosque in Egypt to illustrate further the land of Moses. It is in Old Cairo, and its foundations were laid A.D. 643. It is called the Mosque of Amr because the land upon which it is built was given by Amr-ibu-el-Asi. Of the original mosque it said very little remains. Nearly all of that building was burned down at the end of the ninth century. During the tenth century the mosque was enlarged and rebuilt. The court measures 350 by 400 feet, and the building contains 366 pillars. There is one row on the west side, three rows on the north and south sides, and six rows on the east side. In the northeast corner is the tomb of Abdallah, the son of Amr. Upon one of the pillars is the name Mu-ham-med. These pillars are of all styles of architecture, which is supposed to grow out of the fact that they were brought from other buildings in Cairo." See 5332BAI/LVii58CAJS (Voyager # 361573).
