In the 9th century Egypt was mostly governed by Turks ruling in the name of the Arab governor.
Egypt came into conflict with Syria and the Caliphate until peace was made in 891.

It was a later Egypt that gave birth to horoscopic astrology, an Egypt that had made close contact with the ideas of the Babylonians.
