Large green moth

Saw this moth on a wall at the temple of Philae at Aswan in Egypt. It was 6 to 8 inchesf rom wingtip to wingtip. There was no vegetation for dozens of yards in any direction..
Hi P Tucker,
This is an Oleander Hawkmoth, a species that is relatively common in the Mediterranean region, in Africa and in Asia.
Thank you very much for your explanation.
