Edfu is known by several names, in Ancient Egypt it was known as Tbot. To the Greeks it was known as city of Apollinopolis Magna. Another common name for Edfu is an alternative spelling of Idfu. By whatever name it was known it was the capitol city of the 2nd nome of Ancient Egypt. This 2nd nome was named after Horus. About halfway between Luxor and Aswan it is less than a mile from Aswan. It houses the best preserved cult temple in Egypt. The Temple of Horus at Edfu is the major site in this ancient city. While the current remains of the temple are from the Ptolemaic (237- 57 BCE) period during the reigns of 6 Pharaoh. This temple was built on ancient foundations. The temple was first excavated by Auguste Mariette in the 1860s.
Once a year for the "Feast of the Beautiful Meeting," Hathor traveled from Dendera to Edfu to visit her husband/consort, Horus. Her arrival was scheduled for the afternoon of the new moon. The statues of the deities remained in the mammisi or birth house (not pictured) until the end of the festival at the full moon. The result of their union was their son Ihy or Horus-Sematawy.
