The Temple of the Falcon with a mysterious message found in Egypt has puzzled archaeologists

The depiction of a falcon in Berenice’s Falcon Reserve could represent a number of deities. This falcon sculpture comes from Edfu, a city on the Nile south of Luxor.

Egyptian archaeologists discovered a 1,700-year-old “falcon sanctuary” with the remains of 15 headless falcons on a pedestal, as well as a stone monument depicting two unknown gods.

The sanctuary and the monument – which were found in Berenice, a ancient egyptian port on the Red Sea – were described in an article published in the October issue of the magazine American Journal of Archaeology. An iron harpoon about 13 inches (34 centimeters) long was found near the pedestal, the researchers wrote in the study.
