Tell Timai, (Egypt) 2009-2020: The Ptolemaic-Roman north western temple zone and Roman city excavations

James E. Bennett

This monograph covers the excavations conducted at the Ptolemaic-Roman city of Tell Timai by the University of Hawaii from 2009 - 2020. It is divided into four parts. Chapter 1 concerns the excavation and identification of a previously unknown Ptolemaic-Roman temple complex in the north-west of the site, focusing on a monumental stone gateway and mud brick enclosure wall. Chapter 2 documents a large domestic structure on the outside of the enclosure and its associated domestic material culture. Chapter 3 discusses several Late Roman burials interred on the ruins of the temple's western enclosure wall. And Part 4 analyses the initial excavations of a 2nd century Roman temple in the centre of the city, as well as the extensive pre-temple occupation layers and architecture found beneath, which potentially had later usage as a church.
