How Long?

How long did the Holy Family stay in Egypt? The Coptic tradition seems to feel that they were there for three years and six months, spending the time traveling around the country getting as far south as Asyut where they stayed at an ancient quarry. There is a very popular Christian mulid or pilgrimage there in August at the Feast of the Assumption.
