Excavations at Tell el-Balamun: 1995-98 [Paperback]

A. Jeffrey Spencer

Available from these sellers.

Book Description

29 Nov 1999
This is the second volume of final reports on the British Museum excavations at Tell el-Balamun in the northern Delta region of Egypt, location of the New Kingdom city of Paiuenamum and site of the older urban centre of Sma-Behdet. Two stages of building in the Temple of Amun have been identified and planned from the extensive remains of their foundations. These monuments date from the reigns of Sheshonk III and Nekhtnebef respectively, as shown by inscriptions recovered from several foundation deposits and the destruction of the temple in the intervening Persian period has been demonstrated from stratigraphic evidence. The excavations have also exposed some remains from the temple complex of the New Kingdom, including part of a massive enclosure wall and a damaged quartzite sculpture of Rameses II. Above the New Kingdom level was a brick-built tomb from the Twenty second Dynasty containing the burial of a high official named Iken, who lived under King Osorkon I.
