ACCESS: by road or rail from EI- Minya, 48 km S.

The busy district capital of Mallawi lies on the W bank of the Ibrahimiya Canal in the extensive area of cultivated land between the Bahr Yusuf and the Nile. In spite of its rapid industrial development , the town has preserved much of its old rural character. There is a colorful weekly market to which the people of the surrounding area flock to sell their produce.

 

El-Ashmunein

 

     Surroundings of MaIIawi, 10 km E, at the village of El-Ashmunein, are the extensive ruins and mounds of rubble which mark the site of the once-famous city of Khmunu (Copitc Shmun; the "City of the Eight Deities", which from a very early period was the principal center of the cult of Thoth, the god of writing, healing and knowledge.

 

Tuna El Gebel

     7 km W of EI-Ashmunein, beyond the Bahr Yusuf, is the necropolis of Tuna el-Gebel, the burial- place of Hermoupolis, lying under the plateau of the Western Desert. Here, too, in the northern entrance of the area , is a rock-cut stelae in the name of Akhenaten, marking the boundary of the territory controlled by Tell el-Amama. The cemetery itself dates back to the 5th century B.C. In an extensive system of catacombs were found many ibis and baboon burials and Aramaic papyri dating from the time of Darius.

The Tomb of Petosiris

     The most important monument in the necropolis is the Funerary Temple of Petosiris, a leading citizen of Hermoupolis and High Priest in the Temple of Thoth, who built this family mausoleum about 300 B.C. It consists of a vestibule dedicated to the memory of Petosiris - a later part of the structure - and an almost square chapel, with four pillars, which Petosiris dedicated to the cult of his father and his elder brother. Both chambers were decorated by Egyptian artists with reliefs of great interest for the history of Egyptian art, some of them with well - preserved coloring. While the religious scenes, particularly in the chapel, are in purely Egyptian style, apparently following 18th Dynasty relief, the secular ones depicting events from every day life in the vestibule and on the lower part of the chapel walls, are in a hybrid Egyptian- Greek and sometimes in a purely Greek style.

 

Deir El-Bersha

     Opposite Mallawi on the E bank of the Nile, some distance from the river, lies the Coptic village of Deir el-Bersha, with an old church. To the E of the Village, at a Coptic cemetery, is the mouth of a ravine running from NW to SE, the Wadi Nakhla of Wadi Deir el-Bersha, in the steep sides of which are many quarries and ancient tombs. The valley is chiefly noted for the rock tombs of the Middle Kingdom in its northern slopes, belonging to nomarchs of the 15th Nome of Upper Egypt, the Hare nome. The only tomb worth a visit is No. 2, the Tomb of Thuthotep, Prince of the Hare nome in the reigns of Amenemhet II and Sesostris II and III. The tomb is similar in form to the tombs of Beni Hasan. The vestibule, originally with two palm columns, has fallen in the early Roman period.
 

El-Sheikh Abada

     El-Sheikh Abada is located on the eastern bank of the Nile about 45 Kilometres southeast of Minia. It contains monuments dating from the reign of Ramses II. Here also are the remains of the Roman town of Antinoupolis (or Antinous) built 130 A. D. by the Roman emperor Hadrian in memory of his favorite cupbearer Antinous. Mary the Coptic, one of prophet Mohamed’s wives was born in this region.
 

Deir Abu-Henis

     It has a church from the fifth century, which show a mixture of the Byzantine and the Bazlki styles, and a church for Saint Hanna El-kasir.

  Mallawi has an interesting Museum containing archaeological material from Hermopolis Magna and Tuna El- Gebel and Meir areas, including many mummies, sarcophagi and statuettes of ibises which were worshiped together with baboons as animals sacred to the god Thoth, and also glass, pottery, faience, domestic equipment and numerous papyri. The exhibits date back to the Greek period (332 – 30 B.C), the Roman period (30 B.C – 324 A.D), and some from the Pharaonic Old Kingdom and the Amarna age.
