Photographer's Note

The last temple that I want to show here is Kom Ombo. Most of the ships come to Kom Ombo in the night. The temple is beautifully illuminated, so it looks beautiful and romantic but difficult to take photos of it.
so here I just preset one of the numerous reliefs that I especially liked. It depicts falcon-headed Horus and ibis-headed Thoth pouring consecration water over Neos Dionysos (Ptolemy XII), with crocodile-headed Sobek standing to the left.

Thoth, (Greek), Egyptian Djhuty, in Egyptian religion, a god of the moon, of reckoning, of learning, and of writing. He was held to be the inventor of writing, the creator of languages, the scribe, interpreter, and adviser of the gods, and the representative of the sun god, Re. His responsibility for writing was shared with the goddess Seshat. He was often depicted as a man with the head of an ibis or a baboon, animals sacred to him.

Horus, the falcon-headed god, is a familiar ancient Egyptian god. Horus is the son of Osiris and Isis, the divine child of the holy family triad.

It seems that the Pharaoh has two left hands.

In the Workshops, two views of the night in the temple.
