The history of a temple is written in its walls. This section of wall from the exterior of Luxor Temple shows that it has undergone many periods of reuse over the years. Pharaonic reliefs and inscriptions are still visible, although they have deteriorated over time. In the centre of the photograph are a series of postholes that one held floor beams to support an upper suite of rooms, presumably during the Roman or Coptic occupation of the temple. #egyptology #archaeology #ancientegypt #hieroglyphs #hieroglyphics #temple #architecture #roman #coptic #luxor
A hieroglyph (Greek for "sacred writing") was a character of the ancient Egyptian writing system. Hieroglyphs are written in rows or columns and can be read from left to right or from right to left. You can distinguish the direction in which the text is to be read because the human or animal figures always face towards the beginning of the line. Also the upper symbols are read before the lower.⠀

Philae Temple in Aswan. Built during the Ptolemy period around 600 BC, dedicated to the goddess Isis, and moved to Philae Island during construction of the High Dam. Very well-preserved. As is the Napoleonic graffiti.
