Depiction Of Egyptian Pharaoh Found
CAIRO (UPI) — A stone slab depicting Ramses III, who ruled Egypt’s 20th Dynasty from 1186-1155 B.C., has been found at the Karnak Temple, researchers say.
The rare archeological piece depicts the Pharaoh Ramses III providing sacrifices and offerings to the god Amon Ra, the Egypt State Information Service reported Friday.
Also depicted on the slab is Amon Ra’s goddess wife Amont wearing a crown.
The Temple of Karnak, considered the largest ancient Egyptian temple in the world, is a large complex containing a group of temples such as the Great Temple of Amon Ra, The Temple of Khonso, The Ipt Temple, The Temple of Ptah, the Temple of Montho and the Temple of the God Osiris.
