Put/Phut

Post  A Bible Student on Tue Jul 03, 2012 7:09 pm

Josephus writes of Put/Phut in the Antiquities of the Jews, book1, chapter 6, section 2:
Phut also was the founder of Libya, and called the inhabitants Phutites, from himself: there is also a river in the country of Moors which bears that name; whence it is that we may see the greatest part of the Grecian historiographers mention that river and the adjoining country by the apellation of Phut: but the name it has now has been by change given it from one of the sons of Mesraim, who was called Lybyos.
