Contra-Latopolis was an ancient Egyptian town on the east bank of the Nile in Upper Egypt. It was governed under Nekhen, the third nome of Upper Egypt. The ancient site is located at the modern town of el-Hella. Directly on the opposite side of the Nile lies Latopolis, hence the town's Greek name which translates to "opposite Latopolis".

A temple dedicated to the goddess Isis was constructed at Contra-Latopolis during the Ptolemaic Dynasty.
