Photographer's Note

Kom Ombo was an unusual temple, because it was dedicated to 2 Gods, namely Sobek with the crocodile head, and falcon headed Horus, seen here as both the sun and the moon, which were his left and right eyes. He was also the God of Kingship and all 3 are blessing the Pharaoh at left. This bas relief dates from 332 BC to AD 395). More info here:
