Relationships with other locations
Relationships with other locationsThis displays relationships with locations within which the item falls, and relationships which it contains. We only display the immediate relationships, not a full series. If a location falls within Cyrene, we do not also display its relationship to Cyrenaica; similarly, if Cyrene contains the Agora, we do not also display the items within the Agora at the same level.
Related locationsThis is a location within which a location falls. Most of these are conceptual – for example a Roman Province, a Hellenistic Kingdom or the chapter of a book – so many locations have multiple parent locations.

The limitane settlements of the frontier zone lay behind a protective line of fortresses and pushed forward as an outpost on the line of the other two main routes from the interior. Bu-Ngem was essentially a military station, and it is doubtful as to whether settled life outlasted the formal occupation of the fortress.
