phoenicians in Thebe


THEBE  -  Waset


Famous for its Amon’s cult. The places here have the names of Luxor, Karnak, Deir el Bahari, Medinet Haboe, Valley of the Kings. In Deir el Medina we find a village of the workers and there must have been also most of the Phoenicians we encounter in the inscriptions. In total there are 10 decipherable names.
