Sammanfattning

The ancient Egyptian site of Gebel el Silsila is known for its many pharaonic stelai, funerary shrines and the famous rock-cut chapel of Pharaoh Horemheb, but this article leaves the Pharaohs’ chronicles and explores instead a complex and mysterious marking system that is preserved as engravings in the site’s extensive quarries that run on both sides of the Nile. Here we will investigate Graeco-Roman quarry marks, also known as masons’ marks, to learn about their possible practical and symbolic meanings.
