How would the ancients have known what the "Reed Sea" is "shaped" like,
without good maps or satalite images - both of which were unavailible? More
likely, IF indeed "Yam Suph" does mean "Reed Sea", that the name reffered to
the reeds that grew in it. And, as I'm sure you know, there is no agreement
in scholarship as to which body of water is meant.
