Athribis (Hut-Repyt) Upper Egypt
Site in Upper Egypt (to be distinguished from the larger city in Lower Egypt: Athribis is the Greek version for two different ancient Egyptian names, Hut-herib in Lower Egypt, and Hut-Repyt in Upper Egypt). There Ptolemaic and Roman temples and an important Ptolemaic tomb, known as the 'Zodiac tomb'.
|Three are the remains of three Egyptian style temples at Athribis. The 'temple of Physkon' seems to be the oldest, belonging already to the Late Period with a pylon built by Ptolemy IX (Physkon). A second pylon was built by the same ruler. The 'temple of Auletes' was built by Ptolemy XII.|
