146. Saitic (Arm)

Smaller branch of the Nile Delta on the eastern side of the central arm.


There are also two channels which separate themselves from the Sebennytic and so flow into the sea, by name the Saïtic and the Mendesian. The Bolbitine and Bucolic mouths are not natural but dug channels. (Herodotus, Historiae, II, 17:21-25)
