Greek name for the ancient Egyptian Akhbit, 'the king of Lower Egypt's papyrus marsh'. According to some myths, this was where Isis bore her son Horus, or else hid him from his wicked uncle Seth. According to a different myth, this was where Shu and Tefnut were born as the children of the king of Lower Egypt. Certain late traditions (like, for example, Herodotus) say that it is an island floating in a lake near the temple of Buto (that is, moveable and thus better protected from Seth). The temple on the island was dedicated to Harkhebis (= 'Horus of Chemmis').
