A unique fired mud-brick moat at Tel el-Borg predated a Ramesside fort with massive 12-foot-thick walls. Excavator Hoffmeier believes this is the fort called the “The Dwelling of the Lion” (“D” in the drawing).

If el-Borg is “The Dwelling of the Lion,” then somewhere very close, within 3 to 5 miles is Migdol (marked “E” on the drawing), the third fort on “the Way of Horus” where Moses and the Hebrews camped on their way out of Egypt.
