This site occupied during Ptolemaic and Roman times, has two temples. One, mud brick, is the usual type in the oasis, the other a more rare type, is a partially dug into the mountain (hémispéos) tomb-shrine dedicated to a deified man named Piyris. A Roman well is still visible, surrounded by tamarisk, doum palms and acacia.
