Returning now to entry doorway, the descriptions of the walls continue in an anti-clockwise direction; the king therefore always approaches from the right.


This north section of the wall is divided into two registers. But unlike the southern half, it has only one scene in the lower register and two scenes at the top.

Lower register:

The scene originally contained five characters: the king, the queen and three divinities. However the severe damage to the right-hand side as resulted in much of the image of the king, and almost all of that of the queen (Cleopatra II), being lost.

Euergetes II, wears the pschent and, according to Champollion: "a fringed calasiris worn like a coat". Above the king (and originally the queen), after his cartouches, the upper of two horizontal lines of hieroglyphs gives: The gods Euergetes, masters of Egypt…, whose throne is great in all the regions of Horus, their sublime images (are) in the places of Truth".
The lower of the two lines gives: "The king's sister, lady of the two lands, Cle…", the end of her cartouche is destroyed by the damage.

In front of the king are three divinities.

First, the ibis-headed Thoth, wearing an atef-type crown; his right hand raised in a gesture of blessing; the left holds a roll of papyrus and a long palm branch, edged with regular notches, possibly representing years. The text above him says: "Thoth-setem, Lord of Khmun, lord of the divine words, [writer of] the truth for the cycle of the gods, who fixes the account of the years, who determines the destiny in the place of birth, who circulates the royal orders of the one who appears on his throne".

Next is Horus, holding the was-sceptre and the cross of life. He has the head of a hawk and wears the pschent, with the accompanying text: "Horus, son of Isis, son of Osiris, beneficent heir of Wennefer, the great god who resides in Dja-Mut, king of the gods in his place of rest, Lord of the throne of the double lands in Apet (which means the Opet temple at Karnak) ".

Finally, Nephthys, wearing the kiosk and neb-sign on her head. Her left hand is raised behind the shoulder of Horus, the right one holds an ankh. She is: "Nephthys, the divine beneficent sister (of) Sefkhet, the great, the mistress of the writings, resident in Dja-Mut". The inclusion of the name Sefkhet is confusing, her headdress is the seven pointed star; she is sometimes regarded as the wife of Thoth and was also known as 'Mistress of the House of Books'. So, although Nephthys is shown and named here, the latter description in the text actually refers to Sefkhet.

Upper register:

As on the south part of the wall, both scenes display the cult worship by Ptolemy to his ancestors. The scenes start with the one on the right.

First scene:
Euergetes, approaching from the right, wears the pschent simply placed on a short wig. He makes a libation from vessels (now lost) which he holds in his raised hands. From these, water flows out onto the ground in two streams. Between the two streams of water is a vertical inscription: "Paying homage with the two vessels to his father and to his mother".

In front of Euergetes is seated a divine king, wearing an atef-type crown. He holds, as with the gods, the was-sceptre and the ankh. This is: "The king's father, Ptolemy (V), the god Epiphane". He says: "I grant to you that water flows on your command".

Standing behind him, wearing the Hathoric headdress, is the king's mother, the goddess Epiphane, Cleopatra (I). She tells her son: "I give you everything which comes from the Nile…".

Second scene:
On the right, Euergetes, wearing the khepresh (with ram horns) surmounted by a solar disk, with an ostrich feather on either side. Euergetes II is qualified as: "The one who also measures the fields [of Egypt]". He offers the two round vessels to another divine Ptolemy. Below his outstretched arms, in a vertical column, it says: "Offering wine to his father and to his mother".

The ancestor is again seated opposite him on a throne, and wearing an atef-type crown resting on the two horns of a ram; and as usual, he holds the sceptre of the gods in his left hand and the sign of life in his right. He is named: "His father's divine father, Ptolemy", also: "The god who loves his father (i.e. Ptolemy IV, Philopator) ". He tells his grandson: "I grant to you domination on the two regions".

Standing behind him, again wearing the Hathoric crown, is his wife, holding the lotus-topped sceptre and the ankh. Above the divine queen, it says: "The divine mother of his mothers, Arsinoe, the goddess who loves his father". She says to her grandson: "I grant that your acts of worship are according to the heart of the gods (i.e. 'pleases the gods') ".


As with the south wall, the two main registers are sub-divided into two scenes in the lower one and three in the upper.

The doorway (3m high and 1m wide), cut through the wall at the western edge, is both wider and taller than that of the south wall. The damage caused at the junction with the west wall having lost what remained of the decoration of that end of both the upper and lower main registers and two nome representations of the base register. Almost the total third scene of the upper register is missing.

The small centrally positioned window once again divides the frieze and the long inscription, both of which retain most of the colours and are described fully, below.

Lower register:

First scene:
Standing on the right, Euergetes holds his right hand to the door of a shrine, which contains the god Thoth, to open it. He wears the nemes headdress with a uraeus, but without a crown. The text below his arms state: "I open it… so that you may leave [your shrine]…, gods and men are in health when you leave your sanctuary".

The ibis-headed god Thoth, wears the lunar disk and holds a was-sceptre and ankh. He is in the attitude of striding, as if to leave the shrine. The text names him as: "Thoth-Teos, the ibis, great god who resides in Dja-Mut, writer of truth for the gods". He tells the king: "I grant to you the double lands, all regions and all those who live in them pay homage to [you]".

Second scene:
The left-hand side of the scene is lost by the cutting of the more modern doorway.
Euergetes wears the short wig, on top of which is a diadem formed from two ostrich feathers, the solar disk and two uraei. His left hand is raised, whilst in his right hand he holds a statuette of the goddess Ma'at, goddess of truth, seated on a basket (the 'neb'-sign). He presents this towards the prow of a barque.

The barque is decorated with the head of hawk, surmounted by the solar disk with a uraeus, and nestling within its two open wings. [There is a mistake in the line drawing, which has in error the wings replaced by a basket.] Behind this emblem can be seen, as on the south wall, a ram standing on a support; however, this time it has an atef-type crown on its head. The rest of the barque is now lost.
The horizontal line above the king says: "He who likes the truth, who establishes the laws".

The god, who must have appeared in the shrine of the barque, was, as testified in the text written above it: "Thoth-Teos, the ibis, great god, resident in Dja-Mut, master of the truth, bull of the divine cycle". He tells the king: "I attract to you the hearts among men and women, I make that your love penetrates into the [whole] land, and that all are in joy [because of] you".

Upper register:

First scene:
The king offers a plate laden with breads of various shapes to two deities. He wears the complex atef-type crown on top of the crown of the North. Very little remains of his texts. But the long column of text behind him states: "I present to you the offerings which [delight your Duplicate, an infinite number of breads and excellent sacred cakes, resting [on] the altar, in addition to the offerings which I make, and which are pure".

The seated hawk-headed god with the was-sceptre and ankh, is: "Montu-Ra, Lord of Thebes, bull who resides in Hermonthis, Horokhuti, established as Ra, who traverses the two lands". He says to the king: "I grant you life, happiness, cheer, joy, and that which you bring with the provisions, according to your desire".

The goddess who stands behind the seated god, wears the solar disk between the horns of a cow. She is: "Tanenit Rait-Taui, sovereign of Hermonthis, who shows the Truth, sovereign of…. She is the goddess best associated with beer. In the vertical inscription under her arm, she says: "I give you all products of Sibu, all the plants which grow on the land".

Finally, in the left-hand framing column: ""I grant that you appear on the throne of Horus, your royalty being the royalty of Sibu, … the royalty of the South and the North, among the living who are on land, the barbarians being united under your sandals".

Second scene:
This scene is similar to the first scene of the upper register of the west wall. Here Euergetes wears the pschent on top of a short wig, whilst with both of his hands he holds up a large multi-row necklace. This time he presents it to a goddess. Because of the major differences they cannot be considered as counterparts.

Very little remains of the texts associated with the king. The exception being the latter part of the vertical column behind him, which says: "The lord of the diadems, Ptolemy, raises (i.e. presents) the necklace to the king of the gods".

The seated goddess wears the crown of the North, and holds the lotus-headed sceptre and the ankh. She is: "Amonit, the very great, mistress of the land, who resides in…, the great cow, who gave birth to Ra, lady of the houses, of the harvest". She is actually one of the four goddesses of the Ogdaod. She says to the king: "I give you the amulets which are in…, the magic charms of…". The framing column on the left confirms her identity.
As has already been mentioned previously, she is often associated with Neith, the great goddess of Sais, in the Delta.

Third scene:
The two characters which should have been represented here have been destroyed completely. Only the top of the scene has survived, consisting of the tops of the columns and the king's cartouches. The only readable text being: "Beneficent heir, descended of Sibu".
Nothing has remained which would identify the divinity to whom Euergetes pays homage.
