Object description

Behbeit El Hagar is an archaeological site in Lower Egypt that contains the remains of an ancient Egyptian temple to the goddess Isis, known as the Iseion. The site lies along the Damietta branch of the Nile, 7 kilometers northeast of Sebennytos and 8 kilometers west of Mansoura. In ancient times it was part of the nome of Sebennytos, the Twelfth Lower Egyptian Nome. Ancient Egyptian texts refer to the site as early as the New Kingdom , but it may have been simply an offshoot of Sebennytos rather than a full-fledged town.
