EXTREMELY RARE HANDWRITTEN LETTER BY FAMOUS ARCHAEOLOGIST AND EGYPTOLOGIST AT WORK AT THE TEMPLE OF KOM-OMBO. 6, 1901, by the British archaeologist and Egyptologist who became world-famous after discovering the intact tomb of the 18th Dynasty Pharaoh, Tutankhamun. Colloquially known as “King Tut” and “the boy king”. At the time of this letter Carter was in the position of Chief Inspector of the Egyptian Antiquities Service (DAS) and supervised a number of excavations. The Antiquities Service also provided funding for Carter to head his own excavation projects. Very few handwritten letters by Howard Carter have appeared on the market and this one is especially appealing because of the mention of the temple at Kom Ombo built. During the Graeco-Roman period (332 BC AD 395). In part: At Kom-Ombo on the mound above the Temple, there is a fort. On the 25th Nov. The famous temple of Kom Ombo is an unusual double-temple of the Ptolemaic dynasty which was dedicated to both the crocodile god Sobek and the falcon god Horus. An extremely rare find, in fine condition, with four punch holes to the left side, and a short tear to the right edge.
