Intersecting walls at Edfu Temple, Edfu, Egypt

King Ptolemy VIII making an offering to the Goddess Hathor and the God Horus. Relief carving on the wall of the ambulatory surrounding the sanctuary of the Temple of Edfu. Construction of the temple began in 237 BCE and continued until about 57 BCE.  The architecture combines traditional Egyptian elements with Greek influences. It is dedicated to the cult of a triad of Gods: Horus of Behdet, his wife Hathor and their son, Hor-Sama-Tawy.
