It represents a typical living house of the Late Period (664-332BC) in Ancient Egypt. One can see two entrance doors at the ground level and several windows in the upper floors as well as a roof terrace.
This type of the tower house evolved at the end of the Third Intermediate Period and continued to be in use in Egypt until Roman and even medieval times.
In the Middle East as for example the Yemen, Saudi-Arabia or the Oman tower houses quite similar to this model are still built and lived in nowadays: photo by Jialiang Gao
