TOPOGRAPHICAL MAP OF THE RUINS OF THEBES
The ancient capital Thebes, present-day Luxor,
lay on the east bank of the Nile facing the necropolis on the west.
This map of one of Egypt's most extensive archeological sites marks
the capital and its necropolis with their Greek names: Diospolis
and Memnonia, respectively. All the monuments that were known in
Prisse's day are on the map, often with the name of the pharaoh who
had commissioned their construction. The map is from the original
published by Sir J.G.Wilkinson in 1835.
