Kom el-Hisn

Kom el-Hisn

Kom el-Hisn is an Egyptian Nile Delta settlement dating back to the Old Kingdom with parts dating to the Middle Kingdom. The site's main findings include the Tomb of Khesuwer, a large necropolis, and a temple dedicated to Sekhmet-Hathor. Inscriptions designating Hathor as the "Mistress of Imu", among other similar inscriptions, and the location of Kom el-Hisn have given evidence to the site being the former nome capital Yamu, or Imu.
