dc.descriptionClosed papyrus column, showing the capital, followed by the abacus, followed by the architrave or lintel; An avenue of sphinxes leads from the quay to Pylon I, which is the highest and most recent gateway at Karnak. This is the entrance to the 'Great Court', at the centre of which are the pillars of a 25th Dynasty kiosk built by Taharqa (reigned ca. 690-664 BCE). On each side of the court is a 19th Dynasty resting-chapel. At the rear of the 'Great Court', Pylon II leads to the 'Great Hypostyle Hall', which extends as far as Pylon III. The ceiling of the 'Hypostyle Hall' is 23 m high and supported by 134 papyriform columns. Source: Grove Art Online; http://www.groveart.com/ (accessed 1/19/2008)en_US
