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.

Reynolds, IRT, Section 7: The hill-country of Tripolitania is a limestone formation, nowhere rising above 1000 m. high. The Djebel owes its relative prosperity to the high ground, which catches the rain-bearing north-west winds and assures a rainfall higher than anywhere in Tripolitania outside the Tripoli oasis. Unlike the Eastern Djebel, which was in close contact with Lepcis Magna, the Western Djebel (here defined as from Garian westwards) was isolated from the coastal cities by the Gefara.
