A fascinating mixture of original Middle Kingdom decoration
overlaid by later work

Hi Andie

Awesome picture and I don't see any alien helicopters? I am half way through an article on the less than mysterious Abydos inscription and this picture is an interesting comparison piece.

I have bookmarked it.

Peace

No, Tim - not a helicopter in sight! There was a lot of Ptolemaic work at the site which replaced the original Middle Kingdom building and decoration, of which I assume this is an example.
