The road to this is made underground. Such was the labyrinth; but an even greater marvel is what is called Lake Moeris, beside which the labyrinth was built.
The circuit of this lake is a distance of about miles, which is equal to the whole seaboard of Egypt. The length of the lake is north and south, and its depth at the deepest is 50 fathoms [ feet].
That it is handmade and dug, it itself is the best evidence. For in about the middle of the lake stand 2 pyramids that top the water, each one by 50 fathoms [ feet], and each built as much again underwater; and on top of each there is a huge stone figure of a man sitting on a throne.
So these pyramids are fathoms [ feet] high, and these fathoms are the equivalent of a foot furlong, the fathom measuring 6 feet, or four cubits the cubit being six spans.
The water in the lake is not fed with natural springs, for the country here is terribly waterless, but it enters the lake from the Nile by a channel; and for 6 months it flows into the lake, and then, another 6, it flows again into the Nile.
During the 6 months that it flows out, it brings into the royal treasury each day a silver talent for the fish from it; and when the water flows in, it brings 20 minas a day.
Strabo, who visited Egypt in the first century B. Be this as it may, the Lake of Moeris, on account of its size and its depth, is sufficient to bear the flood-tides at the risings of the Nile and not overflow into the inhabited and planted parts, and then, in the retirement of the river, to return the excess water to the river by the same canal at each of its two mouths [a large island dividing the canal; see While these conditions are the work of nature, yet locks have been placed at both mouths of the canal, by which the engineers regulate both the inflow and the outflow of the water.
In addition to the things mentioned, this Nome has the Labyrinth, which is a work comparable to the pyramids, and, near it, the tomb of the king who built the Labyrinth.
Near the first entrance to the canal, and on proceeding thence about 30 or 40 stadia [3. In front of the entrances are crypts, as it were, which are long and numerous and have winding passages communicating with one another, so that no stranger can find his way either into any court or out of it without a guide.
But the marvelous thing is that the roof of each of the chambers consists of a single stone, and that the breadths of the crypts are likewise roofed with single slabs of surpassing size, with no intermixture anywhere of timber or of any other material.
And, on ascending to the roof, which is at no great height, inasmuch as the Labyrinth has only one story, one can see a plain of stone, consisting of stones of that great size; and thence, descending out into the courts again, one can see that they lie in a row and are each supported by 27 monolithic pillars; and their walls, also, are composed of stones that are no smaller in size.
At the end of this building, which occupies more than a stadium, is the tomb, a quadrangular pyramid, which has sides about 4 plethra [ feet] in width and a height equal thereto.
Imandes is the name of the man buried there [i. Mandes, or Amenemhet III]. It is said that this number of courts was built because it was the custom for all the Nomes to assemble there in accordance with their rank, together with their own priests and priestesses, for the sake of sacrifice and of offering gifts to the gods and of administering justice in matters of the greatest importance.
And each of the Nomes was conducted to the court appointed to it. Sailing along shore for a distance of one hundred stadia [ There being no head of the government in Egypt for two years, and the masses betaking themselves to tumults and the killing of one another, the twelve most important leaders formed a solemn league among themselves, and after they had met together for counsel in Memphis and had drawn up agreements setting forth their mutual goodwill and loyalty they proclaimed themselves kings.
After they had reigned in accordance with their oaths and promises and had maintained their mutual concord for a period of fifteen years, they set about to construct a common tomb for themselves, their thought being that, just as in their lifetime they had cherished a cordial regard for one another and enjoyed equal honours, so also after their death their bodies would all rest in one place and the memorial which they had erected would hold in one embrace the glory of those buried within.
Being full of zeal for this undertaking they eagerly strove to surpass all preceding rulers in the magnitude of their structure.
For selecting a site at the entrance to Lake Moeris in Libya they constructed their tomb of the finest stone, and they made it in form a square but in magnitude a stade in length [ feet] on each side; and in the carvings and, indeed, in all the workmanship they left nothing wherein succeeding rulers could excel them.
For as a man passed through the enclosing wall he found himself in a court surrounded by columns, forty on each side, and the roof of the court consisted of a single stone, which was worked into coffers and adorned with excellent paintings.
This court also contained memorials of the native district of each king and of the temples and sacrificial rites therein, artistically portrayed in most beautiful paintings.
And in general, the kings are said to have made the plan of their tomb on such an expensive and enormous scale that, had they not died before the execution of their purpose, they would have left no possibility for others to surpass them, so far as the construction of monuments is concerned.
We must mention also the labyrinths, quite the most abnormal achievement on which man has spent his resources, but by no means a fictitious one, as might well be supposed.
One still exists in Egypt, in the nome of Heracleopolis. This, the first ever to be constructed, was built, according to tradition, 3, years ago by King Petesuchis or King Tithoes, although Herodotus attributes the whole work to the ' twelve kings,' the last of whom was Psammetichus.
Various reasons are suggested for its construction. Demoteles supposes it to have been the palace of Moteris, and Lyceas the tomb of Moeris, while many writers state that it was erected as a temple to the Sun-god, and this is the general belief.
Whatever the truth may be, there is no doubt that Daedalus adopted it as the model for the labyrinth built by him in Crete, but that he reproduced only a hundredth part of it containing passages that wind, advance and retreat in a bewilderingly intricate manner.
It is not just a narrow strip of ground comprising many miles of 'walks' or 'rides,' such as we see exemplified in our tessellated floors or in the ceremonial game played by our boys in the Campus Martius, but doors are let into the walls at frequent intervals to suggest deceptively the way ahead and to force the visitor to go back upon the very same tracks that he has already followed in his wanderings.
This Cretan labyrinth was the next in succession after the Egyptian, and there was a third in Lemnos and a fourth in Italy, all alike being roofed with vaults of carefully worked stone.
There is a feature of the Egyptian labyrinth which I for my part find surprising, namely an entrance and columns made of Parian marble [white limestone].
The rest of the structure is of Aswan granite, the great blocks of which have been laid in such a way that even the lapse of centuries cannot destroy them.
Their preservation has been aided by the people of Heracleopolis, who have shown remarkable respect for an achievement that they detest.
The ground-plan and the individual parts of this building cannot be fully described because it is divided among the regions or administrative districts known as nomes, of which there are 21, each having a vast hall allotted to it by name.
Besides these halls, it contains temples of all the Egyptian gods; and, furthermore, Nemesis [possibly the Greek equivalent of Nymaatre, or Amenemhet III] placed within the 40 shrines several pyramids, each with a height of 40 cubits and an area at the base of 4 acres.
It is when he is already exhausted with walking that the visitor reaches the bewildering maze of passages. Moreover, there are rooms in lofty upper storeys reached by inclines, and porches from which flights of 90 stairs lead down to the ground.
Inside are columns of imperial porphyry, images of gods, statues of kings and figures of monsters. Some of the halls are laid out in such a way that when the doors open there is a terrifying rumble of thunder within: incidentally, most of the building has to be traversed in darkness.
Again, there are other massive structures outside the wall of the labyrinth: the Greek term for these is 'pteron,' or a 'wing.
The few repairs that have been made there were carried out by one man alone, Chaeremon, the eunuch of King Necthebis [Nectanebo II], years before the time of Alexander the Great.
There is a further tradition that he used beams of acacia boiled in oil to serve as supports while square blocks of stone were being lifted into the vaults.
There are a few other ancient accounts of the Labyrinth, but of the several authors, it is likely that only Herodotus and Strabo personally visited the site.
Reputed site of the Labyrinth at Hawara. There are several reasons for this. Medinet el-Fayyum was also known as Crocodilopolis.
The nearby lake is called Lake Moeris which was named, according to Edwards, not after the pre-nomen of Amenemhet III but after either a town on the lake called Miwer or the canal with the same name that fed the lake, which existed long before his reign.
But there are some problems with this site being identified with the labyrinth. What of the two stone figures rising from the lake?
Gardiner speculated that they are "the two colossal statues of Ammenemes III which Petrie found looking out over the lake at Biyahmu" some seven miles south of the lake shore and eight miles north of the funerary temple!
Of course, there is no pyramid beneath them. And what of the structure of the Labyrinth itself at Hawara? Congratulations to Monsieur de Cordier and all involved.
Click here for the full Mataha report. Inside, the building is of two storeys and contains three thousand rooms, of which half are underground, and the other half directly above them.
I was taken through the rooms in the upper storey, so what I shall say of them is from my own observation, but the underground ones I can speak of only from report, because the Egyptians in charge refused to let me see them, as they contain the tombs of the kings who built the labyrinth, and also the tombs of the sacred crocodiles.
The upper rooms, on the contrary, I did actually see, and it is hard to believe that they are the work of men; the baffling and intricate passages from room to room and from court to court were an endless wonder to me, as we passed from a courtyard into rooms, from rooms into galleries, from galleries into more rooms and thence into yet more courtyards.
The roof of every chamber, courtyard, and gallery is, like the walls, of stone. The walls are covered with carved figures, and each court is exquisitely built of white marble and surrounded by a colonnade'.
The 1st century BC Greek geographer Strabo is the only other ancient eyewitness of the Egyptian Labyrinth whose account has survived.
Strabo said of it that it was "a great palace composed of many palaces" and marvelled at enormity of the stone slabs that made up its roof and walls.
He wrote that it had many great courts, each with its own entrance, but that "in front of the entrances are crypts, as it were, which are long and numerous and have winding passages communicating with one another, so that no stranger can find his way either into any court or out of it without a guide.
When the British archaeologist Flinders Petrie excavated the site in , he found nothing but a vast field of chipped stone, six feet deep.
He said of it:. Petrie could only guess that this structure once measured an enormous 1, by feet, and he summed up his findings quite succinctly: "From such very scanty remains it is hard to settle anything.
Lecture on the ' Lost Labyrinth of Egypt ':. The idea that such a discovery derived from artistic creativity rather than academic or scientific research was warmly embraced at the lecture at Gent university.
The refreshing sight of scientists, artists, scholars, academics and philosophers coming together temporarily bridged a gap that is sadly lacking in the modern times, but that is exactly what Louis de Cordier has done.
In a triumph of artistic instinct he has led the way to one of the great Egyptian discoveries of our age. The 'Labyrinth' plays a special role in human history, believed by many to contain the wisdom of the ages, we can see the same theme repeated around the ancient world.
When Diodorus made his claim that the Minoan labyrinth was a scale model of the Egyptian one, he had not had the luxury of visiting it as had Herodotus before him.
We are now close to sharing that privilege in the near future thanks to Louis and everyone else involved in the Hawara project.
Results : Read by Dr. Abbas Mohamed Abbas. Beneath this slab, a limestone foundation is suspected with symmetrical features orientated in a NW-SE direction.
Vertical walls and several granite objects have also been identified but further results have been hampered by the influence of the ground-water-table, which is one of the major problems faced by the restoration team who will have to find a way of draining the soil of the saline water which is currently destroying the remains through chemical reaction.
The Future: Dr. Ghamrawy has been charged with the responsibility of saving the Labyrinth, the pyramid of Amenenhat III, and in fact, the whole complex.
