Our photo today was made from the temple at Kom Ombo overlooking the Nile River. The temple here was built by the Ptolemies in the 4th century B.C.
The biblical prophets warned that ancient Egypt would come to an end. By the time of the Ptolemies, successors to Alexander the Great, the power of the ancient empire was slowly slipping away.
