Description

Lantern slide. Showing the Hathor temple at Dendera. This photograph was taken by Sgt. Johnson of the 436 Welsh Field Company c. 1917. It formed part of a lecture which he gave. The notes from his lecture read 'The south or rear wall of Dendera Temple. The reliefs represent the famous Cleopatra and her son Caesarion 'whose father was Julius Caesar' worshipping Hathor and Isis, also a large Hathor head now much damages'. On the rear of the temple is a depiction of Cleopatra VII and her son.
