Archaeological site of Atribis ... This archaeological city dates to the Greco-Roman period, located in Nagaa al-Sheikh Hamad, about 7 km west of Sohag. It contains many temples, tombs, quarries, churches, monasteries, and workshops. These are accompanied by several residential neighborhoods.
Since 2003, a joint Egyptian-German archaeological mission has been working on the site and completed the excavation of the Temple of Atribis, which was built by King Ptolemy XII. In addition, more than 13,000 ostraca with religious, accounting, and educational matters in hieratic, demotic writings and Greek, Coptic and Arabic languages were discovered.
This is one of the largest discovery of written ostraca from the ancient Egyptian civilisation, along with the site of Deir al-Medina, west of Luxor.
