Un conception religieuse du territoire : la Basse Égypte d'après la procession des dieux du soubassement nord du temple d'Arensnouphis à Philae.

Abstract : The unique procession of the gods of Lower Egypt that features on the foundation of the north wall of the little temple of Arensnuphis (Ỉrj-ḥms-nfr) on the island of Philae, dating from the Roman period (reign of Tiberius) presents an original “geographical” religious organization that differs from the traditions noted elsewhere (essentially at Edfu, Dendara and Kom Ombo) both in terms of the number of figures represented and their order, which is not the classical one. As well as the usual 20 nomes of Lower Egypt, 27 other divinities are portrayed, each one representing what are habitually referred to as “additional districts”. This unique procession could therefore constitute a sort of “updated” map of the main religious metropoles of Lower Egypt.
