Interesting facts about this location


Ancient Kellis, now known as Ismant el-Kharab (Ismant the ruined), was a village in Upper Egypt during the Roman Period. It was located about 2.5 kilometers east-southeast of present day Ismant in the Dakhleh Oasis, and about 11 kilometers northeast of Mut (more fully Mut el-Kharab), which is the capital of the oasis. In ancient times, Mut was called Mothis, and thus Kellis was in the Mothite nome.
