The edition is bilingual (Spanish / English) in order to contribute to the international dissemination of the sanctuary.
The sanctuary, recovered in a magnificent state of conservation and one of the best testimonies of the dissemination in Hispania of the Egyptian cults of Egyptian origin, was excavated and recovered between 2015 and 2017 thanks to a performance promoted by the City of Cartagena, executed by Cartagena Puerto de Culturas and funded by the Repsol Foundation.
This action is part of the project of the Archaeological Park of Molinete.
