Ptolemy [2] makes it the suffragan of the nomos of Arabia in Lower Egypt; Strabo [3] places Phacusa at the beginning of the canal which empties into the Red Sea; it is described also by Peutinger's Table under the name of Phacussi, and by the Anonymous of Ravenna (130), under Phagusa.

Phacusa is identified widely with the modern Tell-Fakus; Heinrich Brugsch and Edouard Naville [4] place it at Saft el-Hinna, about twelve miles from there.

Bishops

In the list of the partisan bishops of Melitius present at the Council of Nicæa in 325 may be found Moses of Phacusa; [5] he is the only titular we know of.
