Alexandria, Greece...

Dear Editor.

Originally I had a part stating explicitly that Alexandria was a Greek city at that time.

This I think should be still included, because, if one looks at the map one will find Alexandria in Egypt, and wonder why it is a Greek city. Well... I think this is important.

To me this bit of information seems important.

Nothing against editing, most of the bits that got edited sound a lot better. But in this particular case I would like to know at least the reason why you omitted this info in the first paragraph.

Please any comment would be great.

Hi Hell,

I added a footnote that should explain things 'At that time, Alexandria was part of Greece, rather than Egypt as it is now.' Hope that helps smiley - smiley
