The Renaissance stimulated rising interest in Antiquity, and brought back into circulation classical authors such as Herodotus.

As a result, once again people became interested in the Egyptian Labyrinth.

The scholar Athanasius Kircher (1602-1680 CE) produced one of the first pictorial reconstructions, mainly based on the account in Herodotus.

At the centre of his architecture drawing, Kircher placed a maze, most likely to have been inspired
by Roman labyrinth mosaics, and surrounded it with the twelve courts described by Herodotus
(Kern 1995 : fig. 63).
