[Amanuense] Hallado Templo de Bastet en Alejandría

Press Release - New Discovery at Kom el-Dikka




An archaeological mission of the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA) led by Dr. Mohamed Abdel Maqsoud, Head of Antiquities of Lower Egypt, discovered the remains of a temple of Queen Berenike, the wife of king Ptolemy III (246-222 BC), along with a cachette of 600 Ptolemaic statues.

The discovery was made during routine excavations at the Kom el Dikka area in Alexandria, in an area that belongs to Alexandria Security Forces.

Dr. Zahi Hawass, Secretary General of the SCA, said that the discovered remains are 60 meters tall and 15 meters in width and extend under Ismail Fahmy street. He explained that the temple was subjected to destruction during later eras when it was used as a quarry, which led to the disappearance of many of its stone blocks.

Dr. Abdel Maqsoud said that the mission, which includes 18 skilled excavators and restorers, unearthed a large collection of statues depicting the cat goddess Bastet, the goddess of protection and motherhood, which indicates that the temple was dedicated to this goddess.

Dr. Maqsoud pointed out that the Bastet statues were unearthed in three different areas of the site along with other limestone statues of unidentified children and women. Clay pots as well as bronze and faience statues of different ancient Egyptian deities have been also uncovered, along with terracotta statues of the gods Harpocrates and Ptah.

Early studies on site revealed that the temple's foundation can be dated to the reign of Queen Berenike, making this the first Ptolemaic temple discovered in Alexandria to be dedicated to the goddess Bastet. It also indicates that the worship of the goddess Bastet continued in Egypt after
the decline of the ancient Egyptian era.

An inscribed base of a granite statue from the reign of King Ptolemy IV (205-222 BC) was also unearthed. It bears ancient Greek text written in nine lines stating that the statue belonged to a top official in the Ptolemaic court. Dr. Maqsoud believes the base was made to celebrate Egypt's victory over the Greeks during the Battle of Raphia in 217 BC.

The mission also found a group of old structures, including a Roman water cistern, a group of 14 meter-deep water wells, stone water channels, and the remains of a bath area, well as a large number of clay pots and sherds that can be dated to the fourth century BC.

Abdel Maqsoud believes that this find is the first trace of the real location of Alexandria's royal quarter.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art was giving fantastic assistance to Howard Carter, when he discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922.
Sometime ago the golden mask received hospitality in the Met during an exhibition that was organised in this great museum.

In the superb Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago, (like in almost all important Egyptian Museums in the world) photography inside the museum(without flash of course) is allowed, in Cairo not anymore since a few years. In Chicago King Tut is photographed as a star by numerous enthousiastic visitors of the Oriental Institute while Tutankhamun in a way lost his star status in Cairo where no pictures are made anymore by the disappointed visitors of the Egyptian Museum.
