Abstract :
Preliminary report on the Pharaonic and Graeco-Roman temple blocks reused in the Church of St. Shenoute near Sohag. While some materials can be traced to sites further south, including Abydos, Nag‘ el-Mesheyekh and el-Mensha (Ptolemais), previously unrecorded inscriptions confirm that a group of limestone ceiling blocks derive from the temple of Repyt at nearby Atripe. This discovery may support Shenoute’s repeated claims to have destroyed this particular temple.
