Volume I Plate 92 - The Temple Ruins at Armant (Pictoral View) ~ On the left bank of the Nile, is the town of Armant, in ancient time known as Hermonthis. Hermonthis was the seat of a sun cult and was used as a royal coronation site. The large temple at Hermonthis was originally dedicated to the falcon headed war god Montu. Though largely in ruins when documented by the French savants, images of Cleopatra the Great and her son by Julius Caesar, Caesarion, were still found here. The temple was used well into Roman times and stood into the late 18th century before falling. Stones from the temple were used in the construction of a sugar factory and the quay along the river front near modern day Armant.
