Among the ancient Egyptians the stables for horses were in the center of the villa; but the farmyard, where the cattle were kept, stood at some distance. from the house, like the Roman rustica. It consisted of two parts — the sheds for housing the cattle, which stood at the upper end, and the yard, where rows of rings were fixed in order to tie them while feeding in the day time (Wilkinson, Ancient Egypt. 1, 30).
