FIRIN, KOM 
This is one of the largest surviving mounds of the west delta, with a long history of occupation.
Commentary in Bernand, Delta Grecs, 1, pt. 4, with quotes of Petrie, Griffiths and Edgar, and accounts of SCA excavations in 1950s, after Leclant. These located many tombs from MK to Ptolemaic in date. American work in Roman and Ptolemaic upper levels with 3IP at depth of 3.50m in one test. SCA dig of Late cemetery by M. Basta. Chris Kirby reported in 1996 that much of the temple enclosure seems to have survived according to local SCA inspectors. Neal Spencer began survey and excavation in 2002 for the British Museum. A modern map has been made and a combination of magnetometry and excavation has already located the sand-bed of the Ramesside temple, within a buttressed enclosing wall. Reports on future seasons will be published by Neal Spencer.
