A Royal statue was unearthed in Iuny, modern Arment

Post by DJKeefy » Wed Nov 21, 2012 7:54 pm

Dr. Mohamed Ibrahim, Minister State of Antiquities, announced the discovery of a royal black granite statue of 125 cm height in the Temple of Arment. The discovery was made by the French mission (CNRS/CFEETK) working in God Montu temple directed by Christophe Thiers. The statue represents the King standing and the artistic features and carving style indicates that it could be dated to the New Kingdom. (click the link below to read more)

Nice piece. Do they mean Armant on WB?

Yes, but the original report said that it was from the Montu temple about 5km northwest of Karnak ie Medamud, but on the east bank! Someone didn't know their compass points, methinks!
I might agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong!

I see more sacred geometry at work.
They were clever buggers those Ancients. Carving Granite like that.. :cool:
They must have had a factory knocking these things out by the dozen.
There's a time for everyone, if they only learn
That the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn.

The original report even included pictures of Medamud, not Armant. :urm:
