Dendera

Dendera spelled Denderah, ancient Iunet, Tentyris or Tentyra is a small town and former bishopric in Egypt situated on the west bank of the Nile, about 5 kilometres south of Qena, on the opposite side of the river. It is located 60 kilometres north of Luxor and remains a Latin Catholic titular see, it contains the Dendera Temple complex, one of the best-preserved temple sites from ancient Upper Egypt. At a rather isolated place at the edge of the desert, about 2.5 kilometres south-west of the modern town, lies what Dendera is famous for, a Greco-Roman temple complex known in ancient Egyptian as Iunet or Tantere. The modern Arab town is built on the ancient site of Ta-ynt-netert, which means'She of the Divine Pillar.' In the Greek era, the town was known as Tentyra. It was once the -modest- capital of the 6th Nome of Upper Egypt, was called Nikentori or Nitentori, which means'willow wood' or'willow earth'; some scholars believe the name derives from the sky and fertility goddess Hathor associated with the Greek Aphrodite, worshiped there.

The official deity of the city was a crocodile. Crocodiles were venerated as deities in other Egyptian cities, which gave rise to many quarrels, notably with Ombos. After Egypt became a Roman possession, the city of Tentyris was part of the Late Roman province of Thebais Secunda, its bishopric was a suffragan of Ptolemais Hermiou, the capital and metropolitan see of the province. Little is known of the history of Christianity in the place, as only the names of two ancient bishops are given: Pachymius, a companion of Melece at the beginning of the fourth century Serapion or Aprion, a contemporary and friend of the monk St. Pachomius, whose diocese boasted the celebrated convent of Tabennisi; the town was given its present Arabic name of Denderah during the late Ottoman Empire and ruled 6000 inhabitants in Qena district. Under the Latin name Tentyris, the episcopal see was nominally revived as a titular bishopric since 1902, but is vacant since 1972, having had the following incumbents of the fitting episcopal rank: Matteo Gaughren, Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate Emile-Marie Bunoz, O.

M. I. André van den Bronk, Society of African Missions Teodoro Bensch Jean-Rosière-Eugène Arnaud, Paris Foreign Missions Society; the Dendera Temple complex, which contains the Temple of Hathor, is one of the best-preserved temples, if not the best-preserved one, in all of Upper Egypt. The whole complex is surrounded by a hefty mud brick wall; the present building dates back to the times of the Ptolemaic dynasty and was completed by the Roman emperor Tiberius, but it rests on the foundations of earlier buildings dating back at least as far as Khufu but it was the pharao Pepi I Meryre who built the temple. It was once home to the celebrated Dendera zodiac, now displayed in the Louvre Museum in Paris. There are Roman and pharaonic Mammisi, ruins of a Coptic church and a small chapel dedicated to Isis, dating to the Roman or the Ptolemaic epoch; the area around the temple has been extensively landscaped and now has a modern visitor centre and small cafeteria. This area has a large amount of sunshine year round due to its stable descending air and high pressure.

According to the Köppen climate classification system, Dendera has a hot desert climate, abbreviated "BWh" on climate maps.

Chertsey Regatta

Chertsey & Shepperton Regatta is a regatta on the River Thames in England which takes place on and by Dumsey Meadow near Chertsey, Surrey. The regatta is one of the oldest on the river. Early records are sparse. In two years the regatta was held upstream of Chertsey Bridge. Since the 1920s, with one or two exceptions, the regatta has been held annually alongside Dumsey Meadow; the detailed course has varied between different directions. The competition is for punting. Since 2004 Dumsey Meadow has in ecology been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. After discourse with local authorities and English Nature, agreement was reached allowing the regatta to continue its partial use of the site for one day each year. In acknowledgement of the support given by Spelthorne Borough Council who own the meadow, the name was modified to the Chertsey & Shepperton Regatta; the committee bought an adjacent field for parking in July 2008.
