In Memphis alone there was a merchant “camp of the Tyrians” and temples to the Canaanite god Baal and to Baal and Ashtarte. Canaanite goddesses, Anat and Qudshu, entered the Egyptian pantheon during the XVIIIth Dynasty, and the cult of the god Reshep flourished in the Delta. One father even accuses a son who has reached the Delta of adopting Asiatic practices. See generally Donald B. Redford, Akhenaten, the Heretic King (Princeton, NJ: Princeton Univ. Press, 1984), pp. 27–29; R. Stadelmann, Syrisch-pallistinensische Gottheiten in Agypten (Leiden: Brill, 1967), cited there.
