A. Erman and H. Grapow, Wörterbuch der aegyptischen Sprache (Berlin, 1957), Vol. V, p. 200. Goshen is commonly thought to have been the Wadi Tumilat in the northeast of Egypt, but the name Goshen has never been satisfactorily identified with any like known Egyptian place name. For discussion, see Finegan, op. cit., p. 6 f. The dominant Exodus tradition in the Bible holds that the Israelites left Egypt from the region of Tanis-Ramesses, the northern capital, and proceeded thence into the Sinai. This tradition, which is later than that in Exodus 15, was not (I believe) originally associated with the Red Sea but only later combined with it, as we see in the contamination in Exodus 13–14.
