The Pillar, 30m high & 9m round, was made of red granite for a pharaoh and is said to have had the urn of Pompey’s ashes on the top. On either side are two sphinxes. As we entered the area through security checks as usual, we were told we could take cameras but one of the men said I wasn’t allowed to take in my little camera stand because no stands were allowed - an indication of ...
