Chapter Summary

The discovery that the great temple of the ram god at Mendes had been fronted, from the thirteenth century BC onwards, by two pylons, focused attention on the structure itself as a typical processional temple. The present destruction fill of the pylon trench shows varying degrees of disturbance. The trench of the eastern massif of the pylon was intact, and its dimensions from the axial line of the temple to its eastern end proved to be c. 30 meters. The present destruction fill of the pylon trench shows varying degrees of disturbance. The east wing yielded a fragment of a "fish" stela of the sort known only from the Hat-mehyet shrine, c. 180 meters due east of the temple.
