Chapter Summary

The archaeological facies of the Fayyum centres suggested that all the villages had been founded in the early Ptolemaic period and definitively abandoned between Late Antiquity and the early Arab period as a result of the progressive reduction of cultivable areas. The excavation of the dune exposed the foundations of a large stone temple built between the end of the first century BC and the beginning of the first century AD. The surface survey carried out in the far eastern offshoots of the North Kom allowed to identify a large building that had partially survived the sebbakhin destruction works; promptly excavated, it showed the characteristic beehive shaped structure of a granary, large enough to be considered a public granary.

Keywords: archaeological research; North Kom; Ptolemaic period; sebbakhin
