Called by the Greeks, the Colossi of Memnon, these huge statues of Akhenaton’s father stand at the entrance to what once was his mortuary temple.
The northern statue would emit a hooting sound in early mornings.
They thought the sound was Memnon greeting his mother Eos, who responded by weeping over the tragic death of her son.
