Travel guide to Ptolemais
Ptolemais - ancient Greek city, which became Roman
Ptolemais - ancient Greek city, which became Roman
Ancient Greek city later transformed by the Romans, like all the other ancient cities in Libya. Only 10 percent is excavated, and the process takes a long time, because work only takes place two months a year. The Libyan government made deals with a number of universities around the world, which send their professors and students of archaeology to dig at the sites. Ptolemais is being taken care of by the University of Warsaw, Poland. Mosaics, which were found in Ptolemais are among the finest in Africa. Odeon, a Greek invention, which is a small stage for listening to the music was not an idea for the Romans. Romans preferred larger theatres for listening to the music on a larger square. The Greek enjoyed music in a more cameral atmosphere. Perhaps this is why the Romans transformed the Ptolemais’s Odeon into a swimming pool, six hundred years after it was constructed as a small concert hall. [edit text]  [editors]
