Footnotes

  • This temple, built by Amenophis III (1390-1352 BC) and enlarged by Ramesses II (1279-1213 BC), was dedicated to Amun, Mut and Khonsu. Ramesses placed two colossal seated statues of himself, wearing the double crown of upper and lower Egypt, at the entrance. These are the figures that Bridgman drew, still at the time largely buried. They were only fully excavated in the 1960s. To the right, inside the temple, beyond the great court of Ramesses II, are the columns which form part of the processional colonnade of Amenophis III.
