Egyptian and American archaeologists unveiled two new discoveries in Aswan, including a royal administrative complex in the ancient Egyptian city of Tel Edfu and a collection of artefacts in the Kom Ombo temple, according to a statement by the Ministry of Antiquities.
At the Tel Edfu archaeological site, a joint Egyptian-American archaeological mission with researchers from The University of Chicago has uncovered the late Fifth Dynasty (2498–2345 BCE) administrative complex.
Meanwhile, an Egyptian archaeological mission working on the dewatering project in Aswan’s Kom Ombo temple has discovered four ancient artefacts on the temple’s western side.
The discovered artefacts include a limestone stele depicting a man and his wife presenting offerings to a seated deity.
The Temple of Kom Ombo was constructed during the Ptolemaic Dynasty between 180-47 BCE, during Egypt’s Hellenistic period.
