[Meaning] Egypt. Since Mesrem[1] was the son of Ham, Egypt [is] "Mesrem."[2]
That which today is called "Meser".[3]
Greek Original:
Χὰμ σκηνώματα: ἡ Αἴγυπτος. ἐπειδὴ τοῦ Χὰμ ὁ Μεσρέμ, Μεσρὲμ δὲ ἡ Αἴγυπτος. ὅπερ λέγεται σήμερον Μέσερ.
Χαμ in the headword phrase is clearly to be taken as genitive based on the context. However, like other Greek borrowings from Semitic languages, the word does not receive inflectional endings.
[1] Otherwise Μεσραίμ , usually transliterated from the Hebrew מִצְרַיִם miṣrayīm as "Mizraim" in modern English versions. See Genesis 10:6 and 1 Chronicles 1:8. See also mu 674 (Μεσρέμ ).
[2] Theodoret (PG 80.1496c) on Psalm 77.51 LXX, where the headword phrase occurs in the dative plural.
[3] (Addendum lacking, Adler reports, in mss AFS.) In modern Arabic, the word for Egypt is مصر misr.
