The sandstone section of road dates back to the reign of Pharaoh Nectanebo I, from 380-362 B.C., and was used in religious processions.
Egypt is working to excavate the entire sphinx-lined avenue. It was heavily damaged during the Roman period by the construction of roads and houses over it and by the reuse of some of the sphinxes in other building projects.
