Abydos

Abydos is the Greek name of the ancient Egyptian town called Abdju. It was the capital of the eighth nome of Upper Egypt and the main cult center of Osiris, the god of the underworld. The modern name of the city is El-Araba El-Madfuna, which lies in Sohag.

Within the region, there are archaeological remains from all periods of ancient Egyptian history: the Temple of Seti the First; the Temple of Ramesses the Second; the cenotaph, or monument, of Osiris, called the Osirion; and the tombs or cenotaphs of the kings of the First and the Second Dynasties.
