[EGYPT 29865] ’Seti, Khonsu and Isis at Abydos.’ The west wall of the Second Hypostyle Hall of the Seti I Temple at Abydos is decorated with superb reliefs. Here we see a portion of wall that is located between the entrances of the Chapel of Amun-Ra and the Chapel of Osiris. On the left we see Khonsu giving Seti the breath of life, in the form of an “ankh” sign (symbolizing life) flanked by two “was” sceptres (symbols for prosperity). Khonsu is depicted as a falcon-headed man wearing the crown of the full and the crescent moon. Khonsu was a protector and healer. On the right Isis caresses the king as a child. She says to him: “You are my son, you have come forth from me, I have nursed you, in order to be Ruler of the Two Lands.” Sitting in the lap of Isis, Seti has taken the role of Horus, Isis’ child. The niche in the centre of the picture at one time probably held a statue of Amun-Ra. The niche is decorated with a scene in which Seti anoints the brow of Amun-Ra with ointment. The niche could also have been used to store sacred scrolls pertaining to the rites which were performed in the adjoining chapel. As the lower part of the niche is without decorations a stash of scrolls wouldn’t have obscured the sacred images on its three walls. The lower register on each side of the niche is decorated with a series of Nile gods, kneeling, hermaphrodite personifications of Egyptian nomes (districts). Each figure is basically male, with the breasts of a woman (symbolizing fecundity), and on its head there is an emblem which indicates the name of the nome. The figures carry food and jars of wine and water which they present to the gods. On the right we see the Upper Egyptian nomes number 6 (with crocodile emblem, region of Dendera) and 7 (with sistrum emblem, region of Hiw). On the left we see the Upper Egyptian nomes number 3 (region near Esna) and 5 (with two falcons emblem, region of Qift). The Seti Temple at Abydos was begun by Seti I and completed by his son Ramses II in the 13th century BC. Photo Mick Palarczyk.
