Silsila Speos Sanctuary North Wall
In the rock-cut temple, the northern wall of the sanctuary offers an interesting parallel to the southern wall. It shows another “pantheon”, in fact a group of invited divinites, but standing in two registers and sculpted in true relief. They number 23 figures mixing gods and godesses. If the destructions are rather related to unfortunate modern theft attempts, some traces of ancient erasures related to the Amarna period can still be seen. THe ramesside presence is this time limited to one line of text added to the right in the lower empty space.
