__|a  Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Isaiah, xix:23.)--'In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria; and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria.' In the verse quoted from Isaiah, Egypt is represented as going to Assyria, and the Assyrians as coming to Egypt. What is true of Egypt and Assyria has been true of Egypt and many other surrounding nations. There was a Persian dynasty in Egypt, a Macedonian dynasty, and a Roman dynasty. Pompey's pillar may be taken as a monument which stands for this universal relation of Egypt with other nations. This was erected by Pompey, a Roman prefect, in honor of Diocletian some little time after A.D. 302. It is made of granite brought from Aswan. The shaft is about seventy feet and the whole monument, including its pedestal, is a little over one hundred feet high." See 5344BAI/LVii70CAJS (Voyager # 361710).
