English: The original island is now completely submerged under the waters of Lake Nasser. But the great temples and monuments of Philae were re-erected on a nearby island, now renamed Philae.
  • The ancient Egyptian and Roman architecture was dismantled and relocated in the 1960s to the nearby higher Agilkia Island when the building of the Aswan High Dam and its Lake Nasser threatened to flood the site. The site had been partly flooded (and damaged) by the earlier Aswan Low Dam for half a century.
  • Ancient Egyptian name: Pȝ-lḳ (Pylḳ - Pr-rḳ - Pȝ-ỉy-lḳ - Pr-ỉy-lḳ - Pr-ỉy-rḳ - Pr-ỉw-rḳ - Pȝ-ỉw-rk - Pȝ-ỉȝ.t-rḳ) - Ỉw-ȝḫ-mnw.
  • Greek: Φιλαί, Philai; Latin: Philae; Meroitic: Pileqe; Arabic: أنس الوجود‎, Anas el Wagud - Bilaq.
