Arcadia Ægypti


Arcadia Ægypti

Arcadia or Arcadia Ægypti was an ancient region in Roman-controlled Egypt. The territory was mostly carved from the former region, Heptanomis, and included the nomes of Memphites, Heracleopolites, Arsinoites, Aphroditopolites, Oxyrhyncites, which together form the northern portion of the Heptanomis, and Leptopolites.

After the arrival of Christianity, Arcadia became a metropolitan episcopal see.
