Tom Van Eynde: Thebes Photographic Project
Temple of Montu at Medamud. Situated about 6 kilometers north of Luxor,
this temple was dedicated to the falcon-headed deity, Montu. It was erected
beginning in the Ptolemaic Period on the site of an earlier temple of the
Middle and New Kingdoms. The hypostyle hall was built by Ptolemy VIII
(Uergetes II) after c. 170 B.C., the facade by Ptolemy XII (Neos Dionysos),
the enclosure wall by the Roman emperor Tiberius, and the peristyle
courtyard by Antoninus Pius. The view is of the southeastern corner of the
ruined pronaos, which is fronted by columns and doorway.
