Ancient cat goddess temple

Egypt announces find of ancient cat goddess temple!
source:news.yahoo
Archaeologists have unearthed a 2,000-year-old temple that may have been dedicated to the ancient Egyptian cat goddess. The ruins of the Ptolemaic-era temple were discovered by Egyptian archaeologists in the heart of the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria, founded by Alexander the Great in the 4th century B.C. This would indicate that the worship of the ancient Egyptian cat-goddess continued during the later, Greek-influenced, Ptolemaic period. The temple was found in the Kom el-Dekkah neighborhood near the city's main train station and home to a Roman-era amphitheater and well preserved mosaics.

There are lots of treasures in the world that is waiting to be found. What a great find. To read more of the story visit http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/ml_egypt_alexandria_temple.
