A map of the Sinai Peninsula in the Hidden Ones bureau in Klysma

The Sinai Peninsula, or simply the Sinai, is a peninsula in eastern Egypt. Situated between the Mediterranean Sea to the north and the Red Sea to the south, it is a land bridge connecting Africa to Asia

In 38 BCE, the Hidden Ones Mentor Bayek traveled to the peninsula on the request of Tahira after two Hidden Ones were killed in a conflict between the occupying Roman forces and the Nabateans.[1]

Behind the scenes

The Sinai Peninsula's name during The Hidden Ones is anachronistic; the ancient Egyptians called the land Ta Mefkat; their modern counterparts refer to the land as Arḍ ul-Fairūz (أرض الفيروز). Both of these translate as 'the land of turquoise'.

The modern name, Sinai, is believed to have been derived from the name of the ancient Mesopotamian moon god Sin, or from the Hebrew word Seneh (Hebrew: סֶ֫נֶּה‎ Senneh).

According to the Bible, Mount Sinai is the place where Moses was appointed by God to lead the Israelites out of Egypt and into Canaan.
