The Egyptian Osireion, located in Abydos.
At the back of the Temple of Seti I (r. ca. 1290–1279 BC), is this extraordinarily unique ‘dummy tomb’ known as the Osireion. This structure probably represented the burial place of Osiris, in the form of a primeval island. A sarcophagus was once situated on this artificial island, surrounded by water.
