Red Chapel

last update: 26.12.2007

Sanctuary, East Gate - Block-No. 262

Stone: red quartzite (origin - from the "Red Mountains" of Djebel Akhmar, an area near Heliopolis)

The block bears a standard phrase that declares that "all the world worships Amun". From the upper right to the lower left corner the inscriptions reads: "All life, stability, und luck, all health and joy. The earth and all foreign countries worship Amun, Lord of the Thrones of the Two Lands, adored by all people [Rekhyt] who exist because of him, million of years, eternally".
