Elephantine

 

Elepha1

The notes from L.Sgt. Johnson’s lecture read: 

Here we have the Island of Elephantine which extends for about a mile and a half…One of the most recent finds in recent years was made in 1907. Immediately behind the rest house a chamber was discovered in which were several small stone sarcophagi and on opening they were found to contain the mummies of the sacred rams of Khnum of the Ptolemaic Period…. Nilometer.
