A tiny oasis in Egypt going back to the Pharaonic era, particularly since the tenth dynasty in the twenty-first century BC, was known as (Banta Aht), which means “country of the cow.” It lies 320 kilometers northwest of Dakhla, 170 kilometers south of the Bahariya Oasis, 360 kilometers southwest of Marsa Matrouh, and approximately 627 kilometers from Cairo. It got its name from the number of meadows and cows in the area. After the Arab conquest of Egypt, it became famous for its commerce in dates and olives between Farfra and the Nile Valley, and it was known as Abu Said, Ain Ibshway, and Wadi Hans.
