|Abstract:||The main body of work took place in two areas, Area 2.2 (Building 6, the large pillared hall and adjacent rooms), and Area 4.1 (the Temple of Thoth). Besides the excavation, work continued on the arrangement of the decorated blocks from the temple in the magazine built for that purpose (see report on Egyptian epigraphy); on the decoration of the replica of the House of Serenos (Building 1) (see separate report below); and on the conservation and study of objects found in previous seasons, particularly the large hoard of tetradrachms excavated in 2012, on which substantial progress was made.|
