How many sphinxes are there in Egypt?
Whenever the Sphinx is mentioned the picture that comes up in most people’s mind is the image of the Great Sphinx of Giza.
It is the most famous, it is the biggest, but there are hundreds of sphinxes in Egypt, and some of them are very beautiful, like this one in Memphis.
Unfortunately nothing is known about it – who it represents or why it was created. But the thousand of years since then have not detracted from her beauty.
Memphis, located 15 miles south of modern Cairo, was under Pharaoh Djoser (2686 BC) the royal capital of Egypt.
