Bayek being attacked by an elephant.

The elephant (Elephas) are very strong mammals living in warm regions. During the 1st century BCE, elephants were used by wealthy Egyptians as transportation means, showing of their wealth, and as animals for fighting.[1]


In the mid-1st century BCE, the Medjay Bayek of Siwa encountered and killed several of the war elephants used by bandits and Romans across Egypt; Jumbe in the Herakleion Nome, Surus in the Green Mountains, Qetesh and Resheph in the Uab Nome, and Herwennefer in the White Desert Oasis.[1]

Pothinus, the regent for Ptolemy XIII and a member of the Order of the Ancients, also utilized a war elephant in his fight against Bayek during the Battle of the Nile in 47 BCE.[1]
