1500 years older than any Doric Columns in Greece endless controversy has arisen amount scholars as to priority of idea. The coumns seem to be a natural evolution from the square pillar of the Granite Temple near Gizeh, with flutes and champfered edges. The Tomb of Ameni-Amenemhat tells us that he was a great soldier in the time of Usertesen I. Mariette B.C 2851. Lepsius 2380. Wilkinson 2080. He Campainged against " the miserable Kushites" as they are called in the inscription. In peace he says " I cultivated the entire nome of Mah with many workmen. I troubled no child and oppressed no widow, neither did I take a fisherman from his fishing or a herdsman from his herds. There was no head of village whose people I had taken away for compulsory labor and there was no one unhappy or hungry in my times" The tombs at Benihasaen have manifold represenations of the Life of that period.
