WHAT DOES CANOPIC VASE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Canopic vase

Canopus, Egypt

Canopus was an Ancient Egyptian coastal town, located in the Nile Delta. Its site is in the eastern outskirts of modern-day Alexandria, around 25 kilometres from the centre of that city. Canopus was located on the western bank at the mouth of the westernmost branch of the Delta – known as the Canopic or Heracleotic branch. It belonged to the seventh Egyptian nome, known as 'Menelaites', and later as 'Canopites', after it. It was the principal port in Egypt for Greek trade before the foundation of Alexandria. Nevertheless it was rivalled in this respect by Naucratis, and Heracleion, the latter city only discovered by archaeologists in 2000. Its old Egyptian name was Pikuat; the Greeks called it Kanobos, or Kanopos, after a mythological commander of a Greek fleet supposedly buried there.
