Renamed article title for NPOV and to be in line with other articles about history of ancient Egypt (like Roman Egypt, Ottoman Egypt, etc) and did some cleanup, but I think still needs more. Khorshid 09:49, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

I am not sure I like the new title, since this could also apply to the Ptolemaic period. I think the articles in this series should all conform to the "History of..." title for consistency. Right now, about 4 of them are not consistent with the rest. — Zerida 21:12, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Copyrighted text?[edit]

After looking at this site: [1], it seems the article may be full of copyrighted text. The site attributes the text to 'EDDA BRESCIANI' - the link also includes the bibliography for the text, proof that the Wikipedia text is derivative of this copyrighted material.

Three eras[edit]

The first sentence said divided into 3 eras, but I counted that there were only 2 (525-404, and 343-332). (talk) 22:52, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

I think the third period refers to the Sassanid occupation (listed as "Persian Occupation" in the template); you are correct, however, in that this inconsistency needs to be fixed. Meta (talk) 22:52, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

Split and Move[edit]

I don't see any reason for attaching two very different eras (i.e Achaemenids and the short-term rule of Khusraw II) together. It's better to split these two eras (which have nothing to do with each-other) and move the first part to Egypt under Achaemenids. Alefbe (talk) 18:48, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

Merge or Split Proposal[edit]

With respect to the last two posts, there is a bit of a problem with this article: "History of Persian Egypt" implies every period of Persian rule in Egypt, and thereby should include all three periods. Yet, a separate article for the Persian Occupation exists (and arguably should, as mentioned above), which is also reflected by the template.

Thus, either the Persian Occupation article must be merged into this article (and the template should be changed accordingly), or this article, as mentioned above, needs to be renamed to "History of Achaemenid Egypt". Meta (talk) 22:52, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

I've split the articles according to the suggestions listed here, and this article now serves as a disambiguation page. The two articles are now History of Achaemenid Egypt and the Sassanid conquest of Egypt. Meta (talk) 23:33, 7 June 2011 (UTC)
Meta, it seems there is a problem of two articles with the same name - History of Achaemenid Egypt and History of Persian Egypt. I suggest they both should be merged into "Achaeminid Egypt" - an article about a district of the Achaemenid Empire. "History of <>" is usually attached to larger articles about states (should be Achaemenid Egypt in this case), but here we have a weird case of child article without parent.Greyshark09 (talk)
Sorry, didn't notice one is a disambig - i shall fix it.Greyshark09 (talk) 16:40, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
