THE SUEZ CANAL The first attempt at a canal to unite the Mediterranean with the Red Sea dates from King Seti I fourteen hundred years before our era. Starting from the Nile near BUBASTIS (at present Zagazig) the canal followed the land of Goschen as far as the Bitter Lakes. Some three hundred and twenty-six years before our era Necho took up the subject, having conceived the project of a canal of ten metres depth, and sufficiently wide to allow two triremes to pass each other abreast. These works appear to have cost the lives of 120,000 men and were never completed. But their track is indicated beyond Lake Timash in the direction of the Pelusium branch of the Nile. Herodotus speaks of canals by which commerce was carried on with the interior of Egypt from the ports of the sea. With the assistance of the canals of the Nile, traversing the isthmus, the Egyptians had established an indirect communication between the two seas, which sufficed for their limited navigation.

Long before the Suez Canal both native and foreign rulers cut canals through the Isthmus for a variety of reasons. Ancient documents mention canal construction by Pharaohs Sesostris I or III (12th Dynasty) -- Necho II (610-595 BC) and the Persian king Darius (522-486 BC) as well as Ptolemy II (282-246 BC) (Hoffmeier 1997: 165, 169).
