Kom Ombo: Temple relief of Horus in Hypostyle Hall (1895)
    .



Relief of Horus and other gods in the Hypostyle Hall (de Morgan 1895).




This rendering from Jacques de Morgan's (1895) report on his excavations at Kom Ombo shows a relief from the west side of the Hypostyle Hall in the Temple of Horus. The hawk-headed deity Horus is shown in two figures at right, standing behind the lion-headed goddess Sekhmet.

Facing them, from left to right, are the ibis-headed god Thoth, the goddess Isis, and her son Osiris. The relief dates from ca. 180-50 BC, during the Ptolemaic era.
