This site extends from the chain in front of Bibliotheca Alexandrina now, to
El Ibrahimiya district- beside what is known as Lokhias in the Ptolemaic Era, which is the eastern quarter of the Royal District. Finding the remains of the royal palaces and temples mentioned in references was something expected there.  In 1998, when the Hellenic Institute started work there, objects around the armlet of the chain from the east that might belong to the remains of Isis Temple or the Palace of Cleopatra VII were found. The Mission also uncovered potsherds of pottery vessels in the form of amphorae that date back to the Late Roman Age.
