Stock Photo - Relief depicting a pharaoh making offerings to the goddesses Isis and Hathor, Philae, Egypt ...
. The construction of the temple dedicated to the Ancient Egyptian goddess Isis on the island of Philae started during the reign of Ptolemy II Philadelphus in the 3rd century BC and was completed by his successor Ptolemy III Euergetes. It was the last remaining outpost of the Ancient Egyptian religion when the Eastern Roman Emperor Justinian closed it down in c550. After damage caused by flooding after the construction of the Aswan Dam, the temple complex was moved, piece by piece, to the nearby island of Agilkai in 1977-1980.
