Ballas: palaces and town of the late 17th Dynasty
Small town, cemeteries and two palace buildings, dating to the late 17th Dynasty were excavated at Ballas by George A. Reisner in 1900-1901. This may have been the strategic base for the late 17th Dynasty kings in their wars against the Hyksos (15th Dynasty).
