- "Haueris holds the tomb and labyrinth of pharaoh Amenemhat III, next to the canal."
The Haueris Nome was one of the nomes of Egypt, located by the Nile east of the Faiyum Oasis and north of the Uab Nome. It housed the pyramid of pharaoh Amenemhat III as well as the tomb of pharaoh Smenkhkare. The city of Hermopolis served as its capital.
Behind the scenes
Even though Haueris Nome is meant to represent the area around Hermopolis in Middle Egypt, its island geography in game, the single bridge connecting the island with the mainland and the Temple of Thoth being based on the Great Temple of Ramesses II at Abu Simbel would mean that the entire area is actually modeled after the Abu Simbel island.
In game the Haueris Nome is merged with Lake Moeris and Faiyum Oasis. This is also confirmed by the presence of the Pyramid of Amenemhat III in Haueris Nome, in reality the pyramid is located near Faiyum. In reality, both the area of Haueris Nome and Abu Simbel are located quite far from the lake and Faiyum.
