Pharos (Alexandria)


This book provides a first-time overview of all archaeological remains from the necropolises Anfuschi and Ras el-Tin in Alexandria, which can be located on the ancient island of Pharos. The individual chapters contain detailed information on the architecture, wall paintings of tombs and cultic installations. In addition, the previously unpublished finds are finally documented through numerous drawings and photos with detailed descriptions. In particular, the movable goods of Pharos reflect the burial customs of Alexandria from the late Ptolemaic era to the early Roman Empire. Furthermore, this volume includes old archival material, such as photographs and drawings, and thus provides a comprehensive overview of the complex hypogea (tombs). Together with new interpretations, this publication conveys a complete picture of a small island at the gates of Alexandria
