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, Chapter 11: The Wadi Zemzem lies some 50-60 km. to the south-east of the Wadi Sofeggin, and it includes Ghirza, the largest inhabited centre in the whole of the frontier zone. Near the head of the Wadi, not far from the eastern fringe of the Hamada el-Hamra, is the legionary fortress of Ghériat el-Garbia. This was one of the three outlying posts established by Severus and by his immediate successors to guard the main caravan-routes up from the interior. It marks the extreme southern fringe of an area in which numerous limitane settlements are known to exist.
