Taposiris Magna denotes the name of a city as well as a temple of the same name at the same location established by the Pharaoh Ptolemy II between 280 and 270 BC. According to Plutarch the temple denotes the tomb of Osiris (which is translation of the name). After Alexander conquered Egypt in 332 BC and established his city (called Alexandro and then Alexandria) the city of Taposiris Magna became a center for religious festival of Khoiak.
Atop the Taenia ridge, an outcropping of limestone which separates the sea from Lake Maerotis, stand two monuments that were partly restored in the 1930s. One is a tower that has been used in the reconstruction of the lighthouse of Alexandria and the other is the remains of a temple of Osiris that is also believed to be the last resting place of Cleopatra. In the most scholarly study of the tower yet conducted, it was concluded that "The Tower of Abusir" was definitely not a lighthouse or even a watchtower. It was probably constructed during the Ptolemaic reign after the Pharos was built and was only a funerary monument.
