Ptolemy, Pharaoh of Egypt. The discovery of his temple Exhibitions
12/16/2021 - 08/30/2022

The Ptolemaic period is the focus of this exhibition organised by the Egyptian Museum of Barcelona. Based on the remains of a temple built two thousand years ago, during the reign of the pharaoh Ptolemy I (304-284 BC), in the city of Hutnesut, the ancient name of present-day Sharuna, the exhibition includes reliable 3D reconstructions and fifty pieces from the museum itself dating from this period. This display provides an insight into both the construction process of the temple and the research of Egyptologist Nestor L'Hôte, the first to mention the existence of a temple at Sharuna..
