dc.descriptionA floral capital, detail; The Pavilion of Trajan (also Kiosk of Trajan) is a rectangular building that has fourteen columns with beautifully carved floral capitals that once supported a wooden roof. Only two of the screen walls between the columns are completed. They show the Emperor Trajan burning incense before Isis and Osiris and offering wine to Isis and Horus. The Kiosk is often ascribed to Trajan, but might well have been built earlier than this, possibly during the reign of Augustus. This unfinished building is one of the most popular monuments of Philae and in ancient times was probably intended to serve as a ceremonial landing stage for the island temple.
