A Roman temple dating to the second century AD has been unearthed in Aswan, Egypt. The sandstone temple has a three-chambered sanctuary leading to a series of halls which are accessed by a ramp. Excavators also found stone engravings with stars inside the temple, which may be the remains of the ceiling. The cartouches of several Roman emperors, including Domitian (81-96 AD), Hadrian (117-138 AD) and Antoninus Pius (138-161 AD) helped to date the structure. It has been suggested that the temple may be linked to the Gebel Silsila quarries, serving as a place of worship for workers who resided nearby. Silsila was a major sandstone quarry in use from the 18th Dynasty though until Greco-Roman times.
