Two-millenia-old chapel discovered in Cairo's Matariya
Found on the archeological site of the Heliopolis temple, the chapel dates back to the reign of king Nectanebu I ...

http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/127633.aspx
Egypt's minister of antiquities Mamdouh Eldamaty explained that the chapel is made up of several basalt blocks engraved with hieroglyphic text. [...]
A team is now working to reduce the level of underground water in the area so as to continue excavations to reveal more of the temple’s secrets, he said.
The archeological team also unearthed a royal statue featuring the cartouche of king Merneptah, who ruled centuries earlier from 1213 to 1203 BC, said Ayman Ashmawi, Egyptian co-director of the mission.
Detrich Rau, German co-director of the mission, added that his team hoped to uncover the rest of the chapel during the next archaeological season, to start in September.

New discovery in Matariya points to a King Ramses II temple

http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/244730.aspx
The Egyptian-German Archaeological Mission at Matariya archaeological site discovered new evidence that may lead to a temple of King Ramses II.
Dr Mahmoud Afifi, the head of the Ancient Egyptian Sector at the Ministry of Antiquities, stated that this evidence was found about 450 metres to the west of the obelisk of King Senusret I in Matariya. It was discovered when the mission stumbled upon a number of blocks from the temple courtyards and fragments of the temple statuary.
Afifi explained that a new group of large blocks was yielded in the southern part of the area.
They show King Ramses II anointing a divinity. His name is rendered by a rather rare variant “Paramessu.”
Dr. Aymen Ashmawi, the co-director of the mission, said that the recent find was part of the decoration of the innermost rooms of the temple. Further groups of relief fragments attest that King Ramses II was the builder of this temple.

Al-Matariya is een deel van de oude stad Heliopolis en was een van de oudste steden in het Oude Egypte.
Naast de ontdekking van de tempel werden er ook huizen en werkplaatsen, metalen voorwerpen en amuletten en gevonden uit de Ptolemeische periode.

Beelden Ramses Seti in Heliopolis

Berichtdoor william » Vr Mrt 10, 2017 3:54 pm

In de buurt van Caïro zijn restanten van twee beelden van farao's uit de XIXe dynastie ontdekt. Dat meldt het Egyptische ministerie van Antiquiteiten. Een van de beelden zou farao Ramses II voorstellen en oorspronkelijk 8 meter hoog zijn geweest.
http://deredactie.be/cm/vrtnieuws/buitenland/1.2913740

Op de site van Heliopolis in Caïro zijn twee beelden ontdekt, een kleiner beeld van Seti II (met inscriptie op de schouder met de cartouche van Seti II) en een groter beeld van Ramses II (niet met zekerheid, er zijn nog geen inscripties gevonden maar het is gevonden aan een poort van Ramses II)

New discovery reveals grandeur of Oun temple in ancient Heliopolis

http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/260597.aspx
Egypt’s Minister of Antiquities Khaled El-Enany witnessed on Thursday the lifting of two newly discovered 19th dynasty royal statues from a pit at the Souq Al-Khamis district in the Al-Matariya area of greater Cairo.
The statues were found in parts in the vicinity of the King Ramses II temple in the temple precinct of ancient Heliopolis, also known as “Oun,” by a German-Egyptian archaeological mission.
Mahmoud Afifi, Head of the Ancient Egyptian Antiquities at the Ministry said that what has been found of the first statue is an 80cm tall bust of King Seti II carved in limestone with fine facial features.
The second statue was found in large pieces. It appears to have been 8 metres long and carved in quartzite.
[...]
At the site, El-Enany said the parts of the statue that appears to be associated with Ramses II will be transported to the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM) for restoration and display when the museum opens.
El-Enany said the newly discovered artefacts would be placed, meanwhile, in a temporary exhibition at the Egyptian Museum.
Head of the German mission Dietrich Raue said excavations would continue in search of other statues and artefacts that could reveal more of the ancient sun city’s secrets.

Newly discovered Matariya colossus is probably of King Psammetich

http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/261102.aspx
Minister of Antiquities Khaled El-Enany said on Thursday that the royal colossus discovered last week in Matariya district, Cairo is probably a statue of 26 dynasty king Psammetich I not King Ramses II as believed earlier.
Hieroglyphic signs and initial studies carried out on fragments of the colossus suggest that it belongs to king Psammetich I(664-610 BC)-26 Dynasty, El-Enany said.
The minister explains that the torso’s back-pillar has preserved one of the five names of king Psammetich I.
"If it belongs to this king, then it is the largest statue of the Late Period that was ever discovered in Egypt," he said.
This date explains the puzzling features of different ancient stylistic details since the Late Period, which is known for its archaizing art.
Dietrich Raue, the head of the German archaeological mission which participated in the discovery mission, pointed out that the colossal statue is carved in quartzite which was hailed from from Al-Gebel Al-Ahmar in what is now modern eastern Cairo.
The statue originally measured about 9 meters in height.
The two fragments of the statue were discovered under the water table, which made their location and extraction extremely difficult, Raue explains.
The fragments were found adjacent to a heavily congested housing area, two to three meters beneath water levels.
Mahmoud Afifi, the head of the Ancient Egyptian Sector at the ministry, explains that both fragments were moved and successfully saved by a team of the ministry's restorers and archaeologists from Matariya Antiquities Inspectorate and skilled workmen from Qift.
Both parts and a collection of recently discovered artifacts in Matariya were transported today - with the help of the Transportation Department of Egypt’s Armed Forces - to the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir for restoration and temporary exhibition.
It will be later tranferred to its permanent home at the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM), which scheduled for a soft opening in mid-2018.
Aymen Ashmawi, the head of the Egyptian mission, said the artifact that is on show with the fragments of the royal colossus includes a relief of King Ramses II. It features King Ramses II with an extended right arm, performing the ritual of anointing the representation of the cult-statue of a goddess. The goddess can be identified by other blocks from this area as Mut.

The lower part of 26th Dynasty king Psamtik I colossus uncovered in Cairo's Matariya

http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/278505.aspx
The Egyptian-German Archaeological Mission uncovered most of the remaining parts of the recently discovered colossus of 26th Dynasty King Psamtik I (664-610 BC) while excavating at the temple of Heliopolis in the Souk Al-Khamis area of Matariya district in east Cairo. [...]
"Early studies carried out on the newly found blocks of the colossus reveal that most comprise parts of the pharaoh's kilt, legs and three toes," Ashmawi pointed out.
The studies also suggest that the buried colossus was constructed in a standing position, not a seated one, he stated.
[...]
The team also uncovered numerous granite blocks that belong to other statues, including one of King Ramses II, the god Rahurakhti, and others yet unidentified.[...]
Among the most prominent parts of the uncovered section, he said, is the back pillar engraved with the sacred Horus-name of Psamtik I, "a fact that confirm that the discovered colossus is that of King Psamtik I, and not King Ramses II as some suggested."
