Phut: Phut is placed between Egypt and Canaan in
(Genesis 10:6) and elsewhere we
find the people of Phut described as mercenaries in the armies of
Egypt and Tyre
(Jeremiah 46:9; Ezekiel 30:5; 27:10) In a fragment of the annuals
of Nebuchadrezzar which records his invasion of Egypt, reference is
made to "Phut of the Ionians."
