List of Kings, Temple of Seti I, Abydos
Egypt

The Abydos King List is considered by Egyptologists to be one of the most important "documents" in their field. On this wall (which slopes gently downwards towards the west) Seti I depicted in chronological order every pharaoh preceding him, with a couple of notable revisionist exceptions (such as Akhenaten and Hatshepsut). Modern-day scholars have found this list invaluable for dating and naming tombs all over Egypt.

Covering an area of about 1,010,000 square kilometers (390,000 sq mi), Egypt borders the Mediterranean Sea to the north, the Gaza Strip and Israel to the northeast, the Red Sea to the east, Sudan to the south and Libya to the west.Egypt is one of the most populous countries in Africa and the Middle East.

The large areas of the Sahara Desert are sparsely inhabited. About half of Egypt's residents live in urban areas, with the majority spread across the densely-populated centres of greater Cairo, Alexandria and other major cities in the Nile Delta.Egypt is famous for its ancient civilization and some of the world's most famous monuments, including the Giza pyramid complex and its Great Sphinx. The southern city of Luxor contains numerous ancient artifacts, such as the Karnak Temple and the Valley of the Kings.
