The capital of Egypt and the largest city in
Africa, the name means "the victorious city". It
is located on both banks of the River Nile near
the head of the river's delta in northern Egypt
and has been settled for more than 6000 years,
serving as the capital of numerous Egyptian
civilizations. Cairo is known locally as "Misr",
the Arabic name for Egypt, because of its
centrality in Egyptian life.
Dinocratis planned the city in squares, like a
chessboard with two main streets interlaced
vertically and horizontally extending from east
to west as well as from north to south.
Alexandria had 5 districts, each one named after
a letter of the first five letters in the Greek
Alphabet A (Alpha) B (Beta) G (Gamma) D

represent the initial letters of the text
"Alexander the king, the descendent of the gods,
erected the city".
