A Water Temple at Bir Abu Safa

Inscription above the false door of a temple façade carved into the face of a sandstone mountain at Bir Abu Safa; of this text, described and assigned to Ptolemy III Euergete…It concerns a one sand stone mountain , which probably dates from the Ptolemaic period. From discoveries demonstrating that this temple was also used by Roman travelers. a relationship is established with the north fortress located in Bir Abraq. On the route between the fort and the temple is a wide variety of archaeological finds made to confirm this theory. The presence of both fort and temple and the findings suggest that there is another route more southern walked alongside the famous Berenice-Apollinopolis Magna route. To date, however, there is no archaeological research has been done to this presumption.
