Descrizione

According to the text, this deluge which covered the trees and drove the Sun-god to the mountains came up from beneath, as the Egyptians supposed to be the case with the Nile flood. A similar story was probably at the source of the Platonic dialogue Timaeus, in which Egyptian authori ties are often quoted. There it is used as an argument to deny the flooding of the world and the destruction of its inhabitants — so far, at least, as Egypt is concerned. For, according to Plato, it was by similar floods in other lands that towns perished, and only the herdsmen were saved in Egypt, however, neither then nor at any other time did water flow down from above upon the fields; it came up from below, and hence it was that in Egypt were preserved the memorials of ancient times.
