Koptos in the Middle Kingdom (about 2025-1700 BC)

Blocks found at Koptos with the names of Amenemhat I and Senusret I show that both kings built at the Min temple. Several blocks of Senusret I belong to a decorated gateway. Senusret I rebuilt and renovated many temples in Egypt. Koptos is one of them.
