Pathrusim were descendants of Mizraim, according to the genealogies in Genesis. According to some scholars, this was in southern Egypt (Upper Egypt) around Thebes, since Pa-to-ris means "southerners" in Ancient Egyptian.

In Book of Jasher (trans. Moses Samuel c. 1840, ed. J. H. Parry 1887) Chapter 10:23, the Pathrusim and Casluhim intermarried resulting in the Pelishtim, Azathim, Gerarim, Githim, and Ekronim.
