Abydos, located on the Nile north of Luxor, is known for the lovely temple of Seti I. The artwork is fabulous, showing the transition into the Ramses period, but without the sometimes crude scale of Ramses II. One wall features a list of over 70 pharoahs (with some key political deletions), a valuable tool for documenting the early dynasties. Behind the temple is a large, strange structure surrounding a pool called the Osirion. This is the mythical tomb of Osiris, and the pool may have been reputed to have healing powers given its association with the resurrected god.
