Freedom Valley, Pi HaChiroth
The Israelites camped in front of Pi HaChiroth, between Migdol and the sea in order to trap Pharoah into attacking them (Exodus 14:2). In Hebrew, Pi HaChiroth (cherut meaning freedom), possibly indicating that the area described was at the mouth of a river. This may mean that it was located at one of the delta tributaries of the river Nile, either at Pithom, which was said to be on the site of Tanis, or near the mouth of the Suez Canal.
