Ancient Egypt Wiki

The Land of Takhsy (transliteration: tꜣḫsy) was a region in the Upper Levant under ancient Egyptian control during the New Kingdom. Takhsy was probably located at the northern Beqaa Valley in Libanon; following the headwater of the Orontes river downstream to the north, where the valley opens up to the Land of Amurru and the city of Qadesh.

A notable city situated in Takhsy was Labana/Lapana (modern Labwe), which is mentioned in the Amarna letters.


Pharaoh Amenhotep II went on a succesful campaign against Takhsy in his Year 3 and captured seven chiefs.
