The temple complex is filled with marvelous images portraying the Ptolemaic rulers. There is a beautiful carving on the external face of one of the temple walls in a huge relief of Cleopatra VII & her son Caesarion from Julius Caesar, showing both of them wearing an Egyptian Barb and offering sacrifices to Hathor.
