View of a copy of a hieroglyphic inscription that was found near the entrance to the Governor's Residence.  The lintel bears the image of the governor kneeling before the name and attributes of the Egyptian king Pharaoh Ramses III.

It indicates that this was the home of the Egyptian governor Ramses-Weser-Khepesh in the 12th century BC.  The house went out of use at the end of the 12th-century when Egyptian rule in the area collapsed.
