ALEXANDRIAN STREET


An artists impression of how a typical street in ancient Alexandria may have looked around 40 BC.

The Greek-style is evident in the huge pantheon-Esque temple in the background.

By this time in history, Egypt had incorporated Greek style into its architecture, fashion, cuisine, trade, music, religion and language. Alexandria was a thriving hub of cultural and economic activity.

It buzzed with commerce and politics and was the centre of the Egyptian world.
