      While they may have been publicly and socially viewed as inferior to men, Egyptian women enjoyed a great deal of legal and financial independence. They could buy and sell property, serve on juries, make wills and even enter into legal contracts. Unlike the women of ancient Greece, who were effectively owned by their husbands, Egyptian women also had the right to divorce and remarry. Egyptian couples were even known to negotiate an ancient prenuptial agreement. These contracts listed all the property and wealth the woman had brought into the marriage and guaranteed that she would be compensated for it in the event of a divorce.

      盡管埃及女性可能被公認為低于男性,但她們在法律和經濟上享有極大的獨立性。她們可以買賣財產,擔任陪審員,立遺囑,甚至簽訂法律合同。古希臘的女性屬于她們的丈夫,但埃及女性則不同,她們也有離婚和再婚的權利。廣為人知的是,埃及夫婦甚至會商定一份舊式的婚前協議。這些協議列出了婚前女方帶來的所有財產,并保證一旦離婚,女方將得到補償。

      Gypsy is a short name for "Egyptian". Gypsies were originally thought to have come from Egypt and some of the earliest references to them in English, dating back to the 16th century, call them "Egyptians". They were accompanied by a legend that they had been expelled from Egypt for trying to hide Jesus. A genetic analysis of 13 Gypsy groups around Europe, published in Current Biology journal, has revealed that the arrival on the continent of their forebears from northern India happened far earlier than was thought, about 1,500 years ago.

      埃及人又被簡稱為“Gypsy”(吉普賽人)。吉普賽人最早被認為是從埃及來的,英語中一些早至十六世紀的紀錄把他們稱為“埃及人”。與他們一同到來的還有一個傳說,說他們是因為企圖藏起耶穌才被從埃及放逐的。但《當代生物學》期刊上一篇涉及13個吉普賽族群的遺傳學分析則顯示他們的祖先是在約1500年前從印度北部來到歐洲的,這比大家想的要早得多。
