The Greco-Roman Museum of Alexandria in Egypt was created in 1892.  It was first built in an 5-room apartment, inside one small building in Rosetta Street (later Avenue Canope and now Horriya).  In 1895, it was transferred to another, larger building near Gamal Abdul Nasser Street.  The museum contains several pieces from the 3rd century BC, such as a sculpture of Apis in black granite, the sacred bull of the Egyptians, mummies, sarcophagus, tapestries, and other objects offering a view of Graeco-Roman civilization in contact with Egypt.
