And there are so many mysteries about the Great Sphinx. No one knows exactly how old it is, or who built it. Despite being famous throughout the ancient world of Europe, there is no mention of it in any ancient Egyptian records, and the monument has no inscriptions on it – this is very rare in Egypt. It is the biggest statue ever found in Egypt, and yet no-one in ancient Egypt ever mentioned it at the time it was supposed to have been built. This is very strange.
