At the Tell Edfu settlement, archaeologists discovered
seal impressions that were discarded on the floor of a
16-columned hall, though their significance remains yet
to be determined.

The experts speculate, however, that the hall may have
been part of a governor's palace built as early as the
12th dynasty, which lasted from 1985 to 1773 B.C.

For generations, the palace would serve as the administra-
tive and commercial center of the settlement, providing
accounting services and a secure location to open sealed
items like papyrus letters, wooden boxes, and baskets.
