Kiosk of Nectanebo

Another kiosk built on the island with the Temple of Isis includes a small structure built by Nectanebo. It stands at the main entrance to the colonnade, up a double staircase.

the remaining columns have two capitals and curtain walls

It was built in the 30th dynasty, to honor Isis, and it is clear that it was the prototype for the later kiosks on the island and elsewhere. The remaining columns have two capitals -- the ornate floral capitals, and above them hathor-headed square columns.

the kiosk of nectanebo lies at the entrance to the courtyard
