View of the Roman kiosk of Qertassi with its four slender papyrus columns and two Hathor columns where the goddess is typically depicted with human face with bovine ears. The monument is an unfinished small structure, which was perhaps originally part of a larger complex. It used to stand at the entrance to the sandstone quarries of Qertassi before being moved to the site of New Kalabsha.
Acquired by King Edward VII when Prince of Wales
