Easton's Bible Dictionary

Pathros:

the name generally given to Upper Egypt (the Thebaid of the Greeks), as distinguished from Matsor, or Lower Egypt (Isa 11:11; Jer 44:1,15; Eze 30:14), the two forming Mizraim. After the destruction of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar, colonies of Jews settled "in the country of Pathros" and other parts of Egypt.

Pathrusim, mouthful of dough; persuasion of ruin

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Pathros:

path'-ros (pathros; Egyptian Pata resii, the "South land"; Septuagint ge Pathoures): The Hebrew form of the Egyptian name for Upper Egypt (Isa 11:11; Jer 44:1,15; Eze 29:14; 30:14).

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Pathros:

(region of the south) a part of Egypt, and a Mizraite tribe whose people were called Pathrusim. In the list of the Mizraites the Pathrusim occur after the Naphtuhim and before the Caluhim; the latter being followed by the notice of the Philistines and by the Caphtorim (Genesis 10:13-14; 1 Chronicles 1:12). Pathros is mentioned in the prophecies of Isaiah (Isaiah 11:11). Jeremiah (Jeremiah 44:1; 44:15) and Ezekiel (Ezekiel 29:14; 30:13-18). It was probably part or all of upper Egypt, and we may trace its name in the Pathyrite name, in which Thebes was situated.
