During the period of Greek and Roman engagement with Egypt, the Tanitike Limne (one of the Nile Delta's many lake/lagoons) was bounded by the Phatnitikon (modern Damietta branch) and Mendesion (now disappeared) mouths of the Nile. The lake's ancient extent corresponds roughly to the western half of the modern Lake Menzala.
