The top half of a large statue of Pharaoh Ramesses II (reigned ca. 1279 to 1213 BC) was recently unearthed near el-Ashmunein / ancient Hermopolis. The limestone piece is over 12 feet tall and depicts Ramesses in the usual Egyptian royal headdress adorned with a cobra. The reverse side of the statue is inscribed with hieroglyphics that give the various titles of the Egyptian king.
