It earned the moniker “land of endurance and beauty,” serving as the center for Ptah’s reign over commerce and the arts (the Patron of Craftsmen). Memphis was the location of the enormous Hut-Ka-Ptah temple, which means “Enclosure of the Ka of Ptah” and was translated into Greek as “Ai-Gy-Ptos,” the etymological source of the term “Egypt.”
