An ancient island located just above the first cataract of the Nile that was flooded by the construction of the Aswan High Dam. The island was home to a multi-period temple complex, which was moved to the nearby island of Agilkia and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the 1970s.

Base map by Ryan M. Horne for Pleiades and the Ancient World Mapping Center (ancient terrain after the Barrington Atlas). Map interaction design and implementation by Sean Gillies, David Glick, Alec Mitchell, and Tom Elliott for Pleiades.
