The Town of Abu Tig in Egypt

Abu Tig

A few miles south of Asyut is the small agricultural town of Abu Tig, which was derived from the Greek apotheke meaning 'shop', or 'warehouse'. The town is interesting from the aspect that the curving, terraced fields give some idea of how agricultural land was laid out prior to the building of the High Dam. Other than that, there is little historical here.
