One of the ram heads - Min. of Tourism & Antiquities
CAIRO – 12 October 2021: The Egyptian restorers of the Supreme Council of Antiquities began restoring the heads of rams that have recently been discovered by the Egyptian archaeological mission excavating along the royal processions road known as the Al-Kebbash Road.
The discovery was made while excavating south of the Karnak temples at the gate of Ptolemy III Euergetes.
Secretary-General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities Mustafa Waziri explained that the mission had succeeded in discovering three rams' heads, and that upon completion of their restoration, they would be installed on the bodies of the statues along the road.
It is worth noting that an archaeological committee oversees the excavations along the royal procession road known as Al-Kebbash Road. The committee has selected a group of rare pictures from the 19th century to narrate the history of the Karnak and Luxor temples and the procession route linking the temples in an exhibition that will be held in specific places along the road.
The pictures show the most important archaeological discoveries, scenes from the feasts and celebrations that were held in ancient times, and the kings who contributed to building this road.
