The Temple of Emperor Hadrian
Just to the west of the Temple of Isis on Philae is the Gateway of the Emperor Hadrian, which
was once set into a wall that encircled the island. There are various scenes involving Osiris, as
well as other gods and the Emperor Hadrian. In the vestibule that proceeds the gate there is an
image of the Nile god entwined by a serpent and pouring water from two jars, symbolizing the
birth of the Nile River. To the north of the gate are the remains of the Temple of Harendotes.
