Goshen
Hebrew settlement 1663 BCE to 1447 BCE

Name in the Masoretic scriptures of the city in the eastern Nile delta, just seven kilometers south of Pi-Ramesse and Auaris, where after the biblical tradition the Hebrews settled down when they came to Egypt.

The Septuagint names the site Kessan, from Egyptian Pa-Kes or Pa-Kus (hence also Greek Phacusa and modern Fakus).
