In 2016, an inscription Londini ad fanvm isidis,, which means “To London to the Temple of Isis” was found on the Roman amphora. This proves that London was once the home of this goddess.
Isis was the Egyptian fertility goddess; caretaker of families. Its cult was also adopted by the Romans. She was often depicted as the mother of Horus.
The discovery was made on Tooley Street, London. The amphora, dated to the 1st century CE, proves that the present capital of England had a temple of Isis. Previously, other clues to the existence of the building were found.
