First discovered in 1986, excavations have since been ongoing at a Hellenistic-Roman town and its Necropolis near the village of Marina, on the Mediterranean coast of Egypt. Remains of more than 50 architectural structures have been uncovered, many endowed with a distinctive decorative stylized architectural form, which forms the subject of this book. Rafal Czerner analyses the architectural decoration and its development, discerning three phases which can be distantly related to the traditional classical orders. He also examines parallels from other regions, notably the so-called Nabatean style, seen at Petra, but increasingly believed to have originated at Alexandria.
