A series of cleanings, diggings and core drillings have already led to a better understanding of the horizontal and vertical development of the Hellenistic and Roman city of Coptos. The evolution of the perimeter marked by the successive surrounding walls is of major importance in our work. Around the preserved structures, the coming excavation of several dismantled constructions and workshops will undoubtedly bring a more complete image of Coptos during the Greco-Roman period.
