This paper intends to focus on the presentation of four coloured linen that is depicted four times on the temple scenes in the Edfu and once in Dendera. In this type of scenes the king is offering the white linen, the green linen, jrtjw-linen and jdmj-linen, with the recipient of this offering being either only the god Horus or Horus in the company of another deity or deities.

Based on a comparison of the associated inscriptions and iconography I focus on every single variety of linen and its meaning and the arrangement of this offering scenes within the individual chambers as well as within the entire temple.
