NOT ONE, BUT TWO GREAT SPHINXES?
Were there once two great sphinxes spanning the Nile?
A curious statement appears in older books on Egypt, without reference, that the Giza Sphinx was originally faced by another on the east bank of the Nile, forming a guardian leonine pair to the entry of Egypt. Never verified, it would certainly add to our understanding of the Sphinx, if correct.
EGYPT "THE MOST IMPORTANT"
Napoleon said it all about Egypt: In exile, Napoleon said emphatically in his first interview with the Governor of St. Helena: "Egypt is the most important country in the world."
It certainly is to me, and to the alternative archaeologist, Anson Hunter, in 'The Smiting Texts'.
