When will you stop your baseless historical speculation and deal with the
Hebrew language itself?

We have already gone over the fact that the Egyptian histories are based on
the propaganda of a late Egyptian priest, not on original documents. As
such, it contains so many errors that it is untrustworthy. For you blithely
to continue pushing them as Gospel truth is insulting to the intelligence of
members of this list.

Not in any Greek source that I have seen. If anything, it is a
transliteration of a Hebrew or Aramaic name.

Doesn’t the way you frame this question show that you are rank speculating?
Especially since you contradict what ancient records say about the sites?
