ICOMOS-Armenia?†Cairo based member, archaeologist and Egyptologist Hourig Sourouzian reported new details about excavations in a burial temple of 18th Dynasty Pharaoh Amenhotep III (1390-1352 BC).
The expedition discovered alabaster colossus of the pharaoh near third supporting pillar of the temple in Kom el-Hettan, in western part of Luxor reports?†IKOMOS-Armenia.
?И?The monument must be the northern pair of Colossi of Momnon. It is likely that the two statues collapsed during an earthquake, but their parts were preserved under Nile alluvium layers. The statue will be installed in its original location in nearest future,?И? said Zahi Hawass, Egyptian Minister of State for Antiquities.source:
