A highlight of my time in Egypt so far was a trip out into the desert to the ruins of Soknopaiou Nesos (or Dimeh al-Siba), a Ptolemaic town dating from the 3rd century BCE. The town sits atop a hill overlooking Lake Qarun in the Fayoum Oasis. A kilometer east lies another hill that was used as a cemetery.
Littered across the hilltop and amongst its caves are thousands of human bones. Looters over the centuries have searched these caves for buried treasure, disturbing the otherwise peaceful slumber of their rightful inhabitants. After taking this photo, this skull was returned to a cave and reburied beside another skull. Maybe these companions will enjoy another long slumber in peace.
