I would have gone further back - to the time of Alexander and the Ptolemies, who were definitely expats! Maybe they didn't come to Luxor though! The Romans definitely did, stationing Legio 1 Maximiana in the fortified Luxor Temple. and making part of it a cult temple for the divine emperors.
I might agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong!
