The Subsidiary Temple of Nekhtnebef at Tell el-Balamun

The subsidiary temple constructed by Nekhtnebef (Nectanebo I) as a barque-station on the cross-axis of the Amun-Temple at Tell el-Balamun has been the subject of excavation during various seasons of excavation at the site by the British Museum, most recently in Spring 2004. The accumulated understanding of the monument gained through this work is now sufficient to present some conclusions on its design and how it compares with other temples of the period.
