The period of Egyptian History treated in the present volume begins with the reign of Uah-ab-R a, the A pries of Greek writers, and the Hophra of theB ible, a king of the XXYI thD ynasty, and ends with that of Ptolemy IV. Philopator, and the narrative describes the principal events which took place in Egypt from about B.C. 591 to B.C. 205. During this period we find Egypt in a state of great national prosperity, but it was impossible for her kings to rival, or even successfully imitate those of the XYIII thD ynasty in the matter of Asiatic conquests. She had never before to contend against so mighty a conqueror as Nebuchadnezzar (Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)
