ACO Yamu

Yamu

Yamu was a village located south of Alexandria and on the west coast of Lake Mareotis in Egypt. During the 1st century BCE, the village housed a temple dedicated to the Egyptian goddess of Sekhmet.[1]

History

In 48 BCE, the Medjay Bayek of Siwa passed by the village while on his way to Alexandria. There, he came across a woman by the name of Ebio, who begged him to help her find her husband Klaudios, who had taken a boat to the ruins near Lake Mareotis. When Bayek returned with Klaudios, he discovered Ebio's claim as Klaudios' wife to be a fraud and helped him to eliminate her two bandit brothers.[2]

Bayek later met Beka, an old man whose Book of the Dead was stolen by bandits from their nearby hideout. Beka requested Bayek to help him recover the book before being urged by his daughter to return home. Beka later died of natural causes, and his body was brought to a mummification temple by his daughter. Bayek later returned with the book, placing it beside the old man's body.[3]

Shortly thereafter, Bayek visited the temple, where he was reunited with Menehet, an old friend of his and a priest of Sekhmet. After laying down an offering, Bayek played a game of hide-and-seek with Menehet's children before ushering them back home.[4]Returning to Menehet in the courtyard, Bayek came across an angry tourist confronting Menehet regarding the sale of false religious icons in the market. Bayek was able to discover the source of the false icons from a rogue merchant and dismantled their operations.[5]

Yamu was also famous for its yearly Festival of Sekhmet, main attraction of which was the reenactment of the fight between the goddess and Isfet, played out by actors dressed as the Champion of Sekhmet and Champion of Isfet.[6]
