Edfu: Temple Portico (Roberts 1838)

Portico of the temple of Horus at Edfu  (Roberts 1838-40).

This 1838 lithograph by Roberts shows the elaborate relief decorations of the temple portico, and dramatically conveys how deeply it was then buried in sand drifts. A view from inside the temple portico in the same condition is shown by the earlier (1799) drawing by Vivant Denon.
