Upper Egypt is also named as Thebaid after the city of Thebes. The regions at upper right (green) are named as Arabia Petraea (Arabia) and Palestinae (Palestine). Regions to the west and south of Egypt are named Libya and Aethiopia (Ethiopia). The distance scales (lower left) are in Roman miles, Greek stadia, and British miles.
