Alexandria, Romania (3902 words)
Alexandria was intended to supersede Naucratis as a Greek centre in Egypt, and to be the link between Greece and the rich Nile Valley.
Alexandria seems from this time to have regained its old prosperity, commanding, as it did, an important granary of Rome; this fact, doubtless, was one of the chief reasons which induced Augustus to place it directly under imperial power.
Alexandria is served by a network of trams traveling east and west roughly parallel to the Corniche, or sea wall.
