One of the two obelisks of Alexandria, also known as obelisks of Cleopatra. The two granite obelisks from Aswan, dating from the time of Tuthmosis III, stood initially in Heliopolis, near Cairo. They were transported to Alexandria by the Romans. Since the late 19th century, one of the two obelisks is kept in London and the other in New York.
