dc.descriptionHypostyle Hall of Ptolemy XII, view looking up showing different column capitals; Kom Ombo is a site on a promontory of the west bank of the Nile, between Aswan and Edfu. Very little remains of the ancient Egyptian city of Ombos, which in Ptolemaic times (ca. 332-30 BCE) was capital of the 1st nome of Upper Egypt. However, the temple complex, dedicated to the crocodile-god Sebek [Sobek] and the hawk-god Haroeris (an aspect of Horus), is well preserved. The main temple was first constructed in the reign of Ptolemy VI Philometor (reigned 180-145 BCE), but its decoration continued throughout the Ptolemaic era (particularly in the reign of Ptolemy XII Auletes; ca. 80-51 BCE) and the period of Roman rule (Augustus, Tiberius, Domitian and Trajan; ca. 30 BCE-117 CE).
