EGYPT
[ Also see Africa Countries Nile River ]

And the children of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold and raiment:
  And the Lord gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they lent unto them such things as they required, And they spoiled the Egyptians.
      - Bible, Exodus (ch. XIII, v. 35-36)

Egypt! from whose all dateless tombs arose
  Forgotten Pharaohs from their long repose,
    And shook within their pyramids to hear
      A new Cambyses thundering in their ear;
        While the dark shades of forty ages stood
          Like startled giants by Nile's famous flood.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        The Age of Bronze (V)

I am dying, Egypt, dying.
      - William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra
         (Antony at IV, xv)
