The Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities recently announced the discovery of the remains of a Greco-Roman temple 50 km east of the Siwa Oasis at a site called Al-Salam. The front portion of the temple was uncovered, including parts of the main entrance and the enclosure wall. The temple's walls, upper lintels and corner pillars displayed common Greco-Roman images, such as the egg-and-dart pattern. Archaeologists also discovered pots, coins, the head of a male statue, as well as two limestone lions. Researchers are hoping to complete the excavation of the temple next year.
