Transcript SINAI. 271 broad. Within are broken columns and numerous (about fifteen) stelce, in shape like ordinary English gravestones, standing up at irregular intervals. These stones vary in height, as do other similar stones outside the enclosure, from seven to ten feet; they are from eighteen inches to two feet in breadth, and from fourteen to sixteen inches in thickness. They are rounded off on the top, forming an arc over the broadest side. On one face appears generally the common Egyptian symbol of the winged globe with the two serpents, and one or more priests making offerings to the gods, while various cartouches (some of them being those of the earliest Egyptian kings) and hieroglyphics cover the other faces. The buildings consist of two temples, apparently of different date. The construction is dissimilar, the one being built up entirely of hewn stones, the other formed by two chambers excavated in the rock at the easternmost end. In the larger chamber the walls look as if once they had been covered with hieroglyphics, though the greater portion has scaled off; at the upper end is a small niche, probably for the with the ws.fc. ^ J£^j£££,SK ## . . c their bright colouring make a deep impression on one altar, beside which is a carved figure in bas-reliet. fresh from the Desert.
