The only picture of a camel on an Ancient Egyptian temple wall

This is especially for my camel loving friend from Texas, Doug Baum.
The Ancient Egyptians didn't have the camel however in the early Christian ere some camel riding Blemyes passed by the small temple at Deir el Medina and carved this piece of graffiti. It is on the exterior north wall of the temple.
