Herr Graf's agents can give us at least some gen eral information as to the locale of their discovery. These portraits, like the papyri lately become famous, were all found in the district now known as the Fayum, the extensive oasis fertilized by a branch of the Nile with its numerous channels, which lies beyond the Libyan mountain range on the west of the great Nile Valley, a stretch of pasture and orchard land between 29° and 30° north latitude. A branch line of railway, dividing from the main line to Upper Egypt at Wasta, now runs through the heart of the province, which is famous for the production of sugar cane, vegetables.
