Known in Arabic as Abu Al Hol (Father of Terror), this sculpture of a man with the haunches of a lion was dubbed the Sphinx by the ancient Greeks because it resembled their mythical winged monster that set riddles and killed anyone unable to answer them.
Then proceeding to witness: Saqqara (Step Pyramid)
Covering a 7km stretch of the Western Desert, Saqqara, the huge cemetery of ancient Memphis, was an active burial ground for more than 3500 years and is Egypt’s largest archaeological site. The necropolis is situated high above the Nile Valley’s cultivation area, and is the final resting place for deceased pharaohs and their families, administrators, generals and sacred animals. The name Saqqara is most likely derived from Sokar, the Memphite god of the dead.
It is entered through a descending corridor that leads to a horizontal corridor, leading to a front room. There are three chambers for storing burial tools on the left, and on the right, on the western side, is the burial chamber whose ceiling is decorated with golden stars on a dark blue background, which reflects the ancient Egyptian idea of the tomb as a microcosm of the universe.
The Kagmeni Tomb is located east of the Mery Roka cemetery and adjacent to it, and its door opens towards the east. The mastaba consists of seven rooms, most of which are rectangular in shape, all of which are engraved in relief, some of which have excellent views. The first room contains murals, which is a boat made of bundles of papyrus, in which Kamanji stands. The second room contains scenes representing fishing, and below these scenes are inscriptions representing types of fish.
