The issue today behind the map, is a new Nile dam in Ethiopia, well above the Aswan in Egypt. Being from Arizona, I can imagine this won't end well. But the map is interesting from several perspectives (depending on your Logos-ified interests):

- The tremendous distances that the Egyptians routinely managed. You can see Luxor vs Cairo (Memphis) and then Alexandria. At the Exodus, the Egptian army would not be impressed with the hebrew escape challenge.

- The book of Enoch (Ethiopia), the supporting city Aksum, and its relation to points north (Egypt). Not a hop, skip and a jump.

- Population supported: literally Egypt is 1/3rd the US (and growing). But it illustrates the claim that Alexandria was the center of greek culture at the translation of the LXX. Egypt was major.

- During 'the Fathers', the little green spot south of Cairo (Faiyum) was one of the last break-away Christian centers (Athanasius? consolidated).

- Mecca. I didn't realize so close to the African missions.
