Grand Egyptian Museum receives Meneptah pillar

The King Merneptah pillar is loaded onto a truck to be transferred to its permanent display area at the Atrium of the Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM), near the Pyramids of Giza, Egypt, 10 March 2018. King Merneptah (13th century B.C.) was the fourth ruler of the 19th Dynasty of Ancient Egypt and a son of Pharaoh Ramses II. The column was discovered in 1970 inside a Meneptah temple at Matariya archaeological site, east to Arab Al-Hesn area. It weighs 17 tones and is 5,60meters tall. In 2008 it was trasported to the Salaheddin Citadel for conservation and restoration as the residential area around it was suffering of high levels of subterranean water. Now it is to be put on display in the atrium at the GEM main entrance gate next to the colossus of his father King Ramses II. (Photo by Fayed El-Geziry /NurPhoto via Getty Images)
