"During the epigraphic survey at Gebel El Silsila, the mission discovered a Late Period rock inscription depicting a rare scene shows Gods, Thoth and Amun-Re with a King who make an offering to both gods.
Another scene discovered shows the process of transferring two obelisks from quarry. ..."

Marc Gabolde (Maître de Conférences [Lecturer] at Université Paul Valéry Montpellier III - Centre d'égyptologie F. Daumas) on "LinkedIn" - 15.01.2015 :
Quote:
"The stela and associated reliefs have already been published five years ago by Philippe MARTINEZ, "Une commande royale pour le Ramesseum : une stèle inédite de Ramsès II au Gebel es-Silsileh", in Memnonia XX, 2009, p. 133-172, with fac-simile of all the reliefs and inscriptions (translated), and it is quite clear that it is not the transportation of any obelisk which is depicted, but that of one square block and another rough-cut block for a statue (?) or a sarcophagus(?) (p. 163, fig. 5). In fact, nothing new."

Greetings, Lutz.

It is pity that get so damaged because of natural processes, but quite nice finding Smile

"Gebel el Silsila Survey Project - In the News" (Tuesday, January 13, 2015)
Quote:
"... Other things that have been mentioned in the various international reports includes the find of a relief depicting two obelisks transported on a boat. This is a scene which Dr. Philippe Martinez discovered during his epigraphic work with us, and which we are preparing for publication, so no images of this yet. There was also reference made to two unfinished obelisks, which is based on two large sandstone blocks that we have documented in the Main Quarry of the East Bank. Contextual epigraphic material shows depictions of obelisks, combined with a technical sketch of how to lower an obelisk, which indicate that these blocks may have been extracted to be sculptured as obelisks. The topic will certainly be further explored. ..."
