For the present purposes, anachronisms are unimportant, merely a sign that the narratives were codified far later than the initial recollection of the relevant events—for example, the fact that the Egyptian king is referred to as the pharaoh (“big house,” a term first attested midway through the XVIIIth Dynasty), the alleged reliance of the patriarchs on camels, first domesticated outside Arabia in the 13th or 12th century, and the like, including toponyms. For Semites in power in Ramesside times, see S. Sauneron and J. Yoyotte, “Traces d’etablissements asiatiques en Moyenne Egypte sous Ramsés II,” Revue d’Egyptologie 7 (1951), pp. 67–70; A. Rowe, “Stelae of the Semite Ben-Azen” Annales du Service des Antiquitiés de l’Egypt 40 (1940), pp. 45–46. Note J. Vergote, Joseph en Egypte (Louvain: Publications Universitaires, 1959), pp. 203ff, for a Ramesside background to the Joseph story; Roland de Vaux, Early History of Israel (Philadelphia: Westminster, 1975), pp. 300ff. At the end of the XIXth Dynasty, Ramesses III reports (Wilson, “Egyptian Historical Texts,” ANET, p. 260) there was also a Canaanite (Horite) usurper on the throne.
