Temple at Kom Ombo Our next look at monuments from the Ptolemaic Period was The Temple at Kom Ombo, a unique double temple, the only one of its kind extant.

The southern half is dedicated to the crocodile god, Sobek, who is revered as a god of fertility and as one of the creators of the world along with Hathor and Khonsu. The northern half is dedicated to Horus the Elder, the god who was the child of Isis and Osiris and husband of Hathor. He is represented as a falcon-headed figure whose eyes are the sun and moon. He is the god of truth, war, victory, and justice.
