RAMSES II MULTIPLIED BY FOUR – IT IS A MATTER OF SIZE

RAMSES II CONFIRMED HIS POWER WITH  REPLICAS OF HIMSELF – AND HIS  STATUS CAN BE FOUND ALL OVER EGYPT STILL TODAY.  BUT IN ABU SIMBEL HIS POWER WAS MULTIPLIED BY FOUR. IT CAN’T HAVE HURT HIS EGO, BUT THESE COLOSSAL FIGURES IN FRONT OF THE TEMPLE, HAD AN ADDITIONAL PURPOSE – THEY SHOWED HIS NEIGHBORS SOUTH OF THE BORDER – IN NUBIA – WHO WAS IN CHARGE.

    This is a message to the webmaster. Your website is missing out on at least 300 visitors per day. I have found a company which offers to dramatically increase your visitors to your site: http://2hams.com/51e They offer 1,000 free visitors during their free trial period and I managed to get over 30,000 visitors per month using their services, you could also get lot more targeted traffic than you have now. Hope this helps 🙂 Take care.
