1901, chiefly at the viith pylon, Annates, ii. 265 ; Maspero following with
notes on statues of a new king of the Xlllth Dynasty and of Amenhotep,
son of Hapu, ib. 281. Further, the excavations in 1901-2 at the viith and
viiith pylons, finding remains of a temple of Usertesen I., showing work of
Amenhotep I. and Thothmes II., two metres below the level of the pavement
of Thothmes III.; the last king therefore, with Hatshepsut, must have
overthrown the ancient edifice to build on its ruins, the change being-
necessitated by the rise in the level of the Nile-bed. The discovery opens
up a prospect of an infinity of early monuments below the present temple.
