Coptic site, perhaps ancient Leontopolis / Natho. The village of Sahgrat el-Kubra is located about 8 km SW of Tell el-Muqdam. The villagers had no knowledge of archaeological remains, but the church, located at the highest point in the town is reputed to have been founded in the 4th century AD. Records from the Coptic period equate Sahragt with Natho, which several scholars believe became the chief metropolis of the nome by the beginning of the Ptolemaic period (Helck 1980: 354f; Gomaa 1985: 352). Natho, a Greek corruption of N3y-t3-wt, "those of the mansion", refers to a royal foundation probably of the Ramesside period, perhaps founded at the same time as the like named Natho and later Leontopolis of Heliopolis at Tel Yehudiyah (Gardiner 1947: *146-*148.). In the list of Bishoprics, Sahragt is identified as Leontopolis.
