The city was dedicated to the Ancient Egyptian god Horus. In Greek and Roman times, it was called Hermopolis Mikra or Hermopolis Parva, which would also give it an association with Hermes, the Egyptian Thoth. As Hermopolis, the city attracted the notice of numerous ancient geographers, including Stephanus of Byzantium s. v., Strabo, Ptolemy, and the author of the Antonine Itinerary. It is a Roman Catholic titular see. In 1986, the population of Damanhur was 188,939.
