Kiosk of Qertassi at New Kalabsha

New Kalabsha is located just 1km south of the Aswan High Dam and
the Kiosk is one of the sites rescued from the rising waters of Lake Nasser
It was originally erected next to sandstone quarries 40km to the south
and is dedicated to Hathor, who was the deity responsible for miners and quarrymen
