Is there a connection with Cleopatra’s tomb? The discovery of an Egyptian royal statue without head supports theories that Egypt’s last queen might rest in Taposiris Magna.
A large, headless statue of a Greek king has been found in the ruins of an ancient Egyptian temple, and it gives support to theories that the building may be the last resting place of Antony and Cleopatra, say leaders of the excavation.
The last five years, archaeologists have been looking around the temple Taposiris Magna some 45 km west of the port city of Alexandria in hopes of finding the couple’s tomb.
The newly discovered statue of black granite – that without the head is about 1.8 meters high – is considered to represent King Ptolemy IV. A cartouche carved of the same stone with his name found near the statue’s feet.
Ptolemy IV is one of several Greek kings, who ruled Egypt under the Ptolemies the period 332-30 BC.
In addition to the headless statue is the Egyptian-Dominican archaeological team has found an inscription written in Greek and hieroglyphics in the remains of the foundation in a corner of the temple. The text tells us that Ptolemy IV, who reigned 221-205 BC, ordered the temple.
Experts have previously believed that the temple built in Ptolemy II, who reigned 282-246 BC.
”With respect to the theory of Cleopatra’s tomb is the case so that the later it is built, the better the chance that it may have a connection to her – and the more likely it is that it was used while she was alive,” said Salima Ikram from Egyptian Museum in Cairo, who have not participated in excavations in Taposiris.
In recent excavations, archaeologists have also found a series of two-meter-high plinths to the sphinxes outside the temple’s north entrance, where the granite statue was found.
According to the researchers suggest pedestals at the northern entrance – and not the eastern portal, as previously thought – was the building’s main entrance. Other Egyptian temples have also sphinxes leading up to the entrance.
