Colossi of Memnon - Luxor, Egypt تمثالا ممنون، الأقصر، مصر
The Colossi of Memnon are two massive stone statues of the Pharaoh Amenhotep III, who reigned in Egypt during Dynasty XVIII. For the past 3,400 years, located west of the River Nile from the modern city of Luxor.
Memnon was a hero of the Trojan War, a King of Ethiopia who led his armies from Africa into Asia Minor to help defend the beleaguered city but was ultimately slain by Achilles. Memnon was said to be the son of Eos, the goddess of dawn. He was associated with the colossi because of the reported cry at dawn of the northern statue, which became known as the Colossus of Memnon.
