    “If we might call the eastern part of Thebes the city of gods and kings, the western quarter was that of tombs and mortuary temples.
    The procession advanced from the Nile toward the Libyan hills by the middle road. South of this road, on an eminence, stood a temple, commemorating the victories of Rameses III., the walls of which are covered with pictures of conquered nations: Hittites, Amorites, Philistines, Ethiopians, Arabs, Libyans. A little lower down rose two colossal statues of Amenhôtep II., the height of which, notwithstanding their sitting posture, was twenty metres. One of these statues was distinguished by the miraculous property that when struck by the rays of the rising sun it gave out sounds like those of a harp whenever chords snap in it.
    Still nearer the road, but always on the left, stood the Ramesseum, a beautiful though not very large temple, which was built by Rameses II. The entrance to this edifice was guarded by statues with the royal insignia in their hands. In the forecourt towered the statue of Rameses II to the height of sixteen metres.”
