NEW DISCOVERY: archaeological discovery found in Alexandria
Alexandria's antiquities department has discovered a new archaeological monument in the eastern area of the city.
Rushy added that the discovery reflects the greatness of Alexandria, which was the second biggest city after Rome during the Roman Empire.
Alexandria and Beheira Antiquities Director Mostafa Rushdie told state-owned news agency MENA that the jars were found during an archaeological excavation survey normally conducted before constructing new buildings.
“The discovery confirms the greatness of the city of Alexandria, the largest in the era of the Roman Empire after Rome,” he said.
