DAYR AL-KHADIM. Ibn Duqmaq (1893, p. 8) and al-MAQRIZI (1853, Vol. 2, p. 505) mentioned a Dayr al-Khadim that was near Bahr Yusuf (al-Manha) in the province of Bahnasa and was dedicated to the angel GABRIEL.
The State of the Provinces in 1375 indicates the same (‘Abd al-Latif, 1810, p. 689). Ramzi (1953-1968, Vol. 2, pt. 3, p. 217) thought that this was the same as the DAYR AL-SANQURIYYAH, but the latter is consecrated to Saint Theodorus.
‘ABD AL-MASIH SALIB AL-MASU‘DI (1924, pp. 163, 179) distinguished the two monasteries very clearly, the first having disappeared but the second still being in existence, at least its church.
ABU SALIH THE ARMENIAN (1895, p. 245) placed Dayr al-Khadim at Antinoë (ANTINOOPOLIS).
