Bashmur (Arabic: آلباشمر, Coptic: Ⲡⲓϣⲙⲟⲩⲣ) was an area in Egypt
Egypt
in which the Coptic Christians revolted against Arab rule in the 8th and 9th century. Location[edit] The boundaries of El Bashmur have not been constant throughout the centuries. Perhaps from the mid-eighth to the mid-ninth century, El Bashmur encompassed the entire marsh region northeast of Fuwa (Coptic: Ⲙⲉⲗⲉϫ, Melej) extending as far to the east as just north of Dekernes. Later it may have been limited to the eastern part of this area. The name El Bashmur survives in this region as the name of a Nile
