Back to Our Egypt Trip
Alexandria's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
We took a breather, after visiting the Alexandria National Museum.
A blue faince hippopotamus!
Pompey's Pillar. Set up in AD 297, in honor of Diocletian. To the Northwest is a complex dedicated to the Apis Bull. This was a cult center for the Bull. About 50' to the Southeast was an underground tunnel with small niches cut into the walls. This is thought to be the only surviving remnant of the Alexandria library, that burned in the first or second century AD.
