I think this can be included in the article. http://www.hinduonnet.com/2007/11/21/stories/2007112158412400.htm Maybe someone can get more information on the subject. Enlil Ninlil (talk) 02:43, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
how is it today part of israel?
Restoring previous paragraph title
The Bucolic War
Text currently says : "oppressive taxation led to a revolt in 139, of the native Egyptians, which was suppressed only after several years of fighting. This Bucolic War, led by one Isidorus, caused great damage to the economy"
This reads to me as if the Bucolic War began in 139AD.
However the entry for Isidorus http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isidorus says that he was *born* in 139AD and the Bucolic War occurred in 172-173.
I haven't yet been able to find any details of a tax revolt in Egypt in 139, but there seems to be something that ins't right in this entry. I don't know emough about it to be able to correct it, so I am just flagging this up for clarification.

Why is province in the title if it wasn't a province?
And if we wanted to be technically correct (the best kind of correct), what would be our alternatives? The only one I see is to move this to Aegyptus and demote the article already there to Aegyptus (mythology) Laura Scudder | talk 22:44, 30 May 2013 (UTC)
