Description:Teilansicht vom ptolemäischen Horustempel in Edfu, der an einer Stelle erbaut wurde, wo bereits Ramses II einen Tempel errichtet hatte. Zeitweise von Kopten während der romischen Christenverfolgungen bewohnt. Die Kopten beschädigten teilweise die Reliefs, besonders, wo sie Teufelsdarstellungen sahen.
