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 Tripolitanian section of the great trunk road from Carthage to Alexandria was most likely constructed during the first two centuries AD. The Emperor Claudius is known to have restored and widened a Carthaginian trail and extended it west and east, thereby creating a continuous coastal highway that stretched for 2,100 miles from the Atlantic to the Nile.
