Ongoing work on the theoretical reconstruction of various temple chambers based on a reconstruction of the painted relief wall decoration. The team proceeded with a program of checking reconstruction drawings against surviving block fragments, coupled with a complementary project of high quality professional photography supporting a series of photomontages of selected parts of the decoration. The reconstruction of the Hypostyle Hall, Sanctuary, and Rooms D, G and H is nearing completion, in preparation for the final publication.
