Pillar of Faith Photograph by Kenneth Garrett
Looted in antiquity for its stone, a temple likely dedicated to the worship of Osiris retains fragments of blocks adorned with the names of 30th-dynasty pharaohs Nectanebo I and II. From atop the ruins archaeologist Michelle Marlar, from New York University's Institute of Fine Arts, looks over the first excavation of the site. "If this does prove to be the Osiris temple," she says, "then it's the latest phase of what is believed to have been a long line of temples stretching back to the Early Dynastic period."
