Pathros (/ˈp.θrs/[1]) was a place located in Ancient Egypt. It is mentioned in the Bible, in the Book of Jeremiah, chapter 44:1 and 15, Book of Isaiah 11: 11; Book of Ezekiel 29: 14; 30: 14. It is associated with Upper Egypt.

The name is said to mean "mouthful of dough" and "persuasion of ruin,"[1] but more likely is a Hebraization of the Egyptian pꜣ tꜣ-rsy "the southern land."[2]
