Tom Van Eynde: Thebes Photographic Project



Temple of Se`ankhkare Mentuhotep (c. 2010 B.C.), Western Thebes. Pylons of the mud brick and sandstone temple of Dynasty 11 are located atop the so-called Thoth Mountain, i.e., the point on the high desert plateau which appears as a mountain from the valley below. This "mountain" lies on the north side of the Theban necropolis overlooking Deir el-Bahari and the Valley of the Kings. The temple, presumably dedicated to the god Thoth, is situated at the start of the commercial and military road leading over the desert northward to Farshut. (Caption - Peter Piccione)
