Hymn To Thoth

The most intact free-standing temple of Lord Djahuty in Egypt is that of el-Dakkeh. It was relocated to el-Sebua to prevent its being covered by the Nile's modern level.  Called P-nubs or Par Nubsy, it was named for the tree that was later believed to have crowned the rabbi from Nazareth at his crucifixion.  The temple was begun by Meroitic and Ptolemaic kings.  Although the Roman emperor Augustus did not often speak favorably of Egyptian beliefs, the temple was expanded with his permission and support.
