Egypt Excavations
A stone Sphinx head in the likeness of Pharaoh Nechtanebis which was unearthed in Luxor, Egypt around March 16, 1949. It is one of many which lined a broad avenue connecting the Temples of the God of Amon in the Pharaonic City of Thebes. Muhammed Zakaria Goneim, chief inspector of antiquities for Upper Egypt, unseen, is responsible for this discovery. The beginnings of the avenue, bordered by ram-headed Sphinxes, was uncovered some time ago in front of the temple of Karnak. Goneim undertook to find the lost section of the avenue, which has remained hidden by a pavement for 1750 years. His workers began to dig on Jan. 16, 1949, on the second day, beneath the pavement laid when the Romans ruled Egypt, he found a headless Sphinx. On a stone pedestal beneath its body he found an inscription which he has roughly translated to read: “l, King Nechtanebis, made this road for the god Amon in order that he might make good navigation from the temple of Luxor. Never before was such a beautiful road made.” Up to the present time, Goneim’s excavations have brought four Sphinxes to light, two headless, two with heads carved to the likeness of King Nechtanebis, who reigned at Sebennytos, on the Damietta branch of the Nile in Lower Egypt, about 400 years B.C.
