TUPHIUM (El-Tôd) Egypt.

On the E bank of the Nile, 20 km S of Thebes. The Asiatic Deposit, now in the Cairo Museum, was found here in the foundation of the temple. The ruins of the temple consist today of a naos built by Sesostris I, a pronaos dedicated by Euergites II to the falcon god Mont; and a Roman court with four columns, a small central hall, and a chapel, all three of which were dedicated by Antoninus Pius to the goddess Tenenet.
