Aswan is the ancient city of Swan, which was in antiquity the frontier town of Egypt to the south. It stood upon a peninsula on the right (east) bank of the Nile, immediately below the first cataract, which extend to it from Philae. It is supposed to have derived its name from an Egyptian goddess with the same name, the Ilithya of the Greeks, and of which the import is the opener.
