Qau el-Kebir


Qau el-Kebir
   Modern name for a site in the 10th Upper Egyptian nome. Ancient Djuqa, Graeco-Roman Antaeopolis. The settlement site is destroyed but once had the remains of a Graeco-Roman temple. The cemeteries date from the Old Kingdom to the GraecoRoman Period. The most important items at the site are the tombs of the nomarchs of the First Intermediate Periodand the early Middle Kingdom. The site was excavated by an Italian expedition from 1905–1906, a German expedition from 1913–1914, and Flinders Petrie’s team from 1923–1925. Another cemetery for the elite of the area in the Old Kingdom was located at nearby El-Hammumiya, which was also examined by the Petrie expedition and later recorded by an Australian team from 1989–1990.
