A veritable drama was enacted.

The ceremonies were mysterious and symbolic, but the most common feature was the procession of Queen Isis in her carriage, far beyond the precincts of her temple on occasions to other towns.

These occasions were passed amid great rejoicing, music, dancing, and feasting which formed important parts of the festival rites.

The feast was held within lofty walls, with an entrance between immense pylons inscribed with hieroglyphs.

Those called to join celebrated the regeneration of the land, the renewal of friendships, and the hopes for a productive and joyful year!
