AWIB-ISAW: Roman Mammisi at Dendera (II)
The entrance to the Roman Period birth house built after an earlier birth house was built over with the foundation for the first court of the main Temple to Hathor. Though probably built by Trajan there is also some evidence that it could have been built by Nero. by Kyera Giannini (2009)

Temple of Aphaia Aegina, Greece
The temple is one of the most beautiful classical temples in Greece and also the oldest surviving.
The first temple on the site (700 BC) was dedicated to Afaia, a deity from Crete. The Doric temple we see today, was built about 490 BC and dedicated to Athena, whose cult had merged with that of Afaia.
The temple is built of local stone, and it served as a model for the Partenon and other temples in Greece, Asia and southern Italy.
This was the Capitol of Ostia, a temple dedicated to Jupiter, Juno and Minerva.
This pyramid is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza Necropolis. It is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact. Egyptologists believe that the pyramid was built as a tomb for fourth dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu (Cheops in Greek) over a 10 to 20-year period concluding around 2560 BCE.
Initially at 146.5 metres (481 feet), the Great Pyramid was the tallest man-made structure in the world for over 3,800 years.
Logically, it is part of UNESCO World Heritage.
