The Temple of Khnum at Esna

The Temple of Esna is dedicated to the god Khnum, his consorts Menhit and Nebtu, their son, Heka, and also the goddess Neith. It dates to the Ptolemaic Period (ca. 305-30 BC), and was built of red sandstone, and its portico consisted of six rows of four columns each, with lotus-leaf capitals, all of which however differ from each other.
