Harawî (also Herui) was a designated nomos in the area around Coptos in Upper Egypt. Harawi was once politically important, but under the eleventh dynasty it was overshadowed by Thebes in the nomos of Waset. This nomos was at the starting point of the two great routes leading to the coast of the Red Sea, the one towards the port Tââou (Myoshormos), the other more southerly, towards the port of Shashirît (Berenice).
