I've just seen the cards you've posted. I think the bottom card is 9c and the top left card is 9b. The top right is 9a. Dummett categorized it as 15th century Venetian in 1980 but I think he changed his mind around 1990 and assigned them to Ferrara.


To answer your question: Yes, Italians did export cards to Egypt, even after the Ottoman conquest of 1517. Dr Ettinghausen owned an 8 of batons and Mr Sa'd Khadam of Cairo owned a 6 of swords which were apparently 16th century Italian exports to Egypt.
