Subsequently to the preliminary considerations about the Egyptianizing frieze, recently published on the Malta Archaeological Review, we here deepen the study of them, with particular regards to the reconstruction of the development of the frieze, of its probable placing, and to the figure of the customer. Two hypotheses of sequence of the slabs are here proposed, slabs who were meant to form a continuous frieze placed within one of the two rooms aside of the temple. The Egyptianizing frieze, which we can date to the first Augustan age, was part of a limited building work which involved also the substitution of the Corinthian capitals of the space. To this limited work could be related a Sempronius Atratinus, mentioned in the only Roman epigraph found in Tas-Silġ, which we might maybe identified as the 34 B.C. consul suffectus.
