New discoveries at Karnak temple

Late Period artifacts

After the discoveries at the Ramesseum temple on Luxor’s west bank last week, new finds were announced at Karnak temple, where French archaeologists unearthed a collection of Late Period artifacts, including three small bronze statuettes and a pot containing the remains of blue glue. The artifacts are offerings to gods, according to the ministry’s director-general of Upper Egyptian antiquities, Abdel Hakim Karar.

God Osiris is represented seated, wearing a wig and the double crown in two of the statuettes which are carved in bronze. The third statuette depicts a god which has not been identified yet.

After the cleaning of the statuettes, archaeologists believe that the artifacts will reveal more information.
