Kom el-Shoqafa Catacombs

Kom el-Shoqafa Catacombs - An excursion in Alexandria, Egypt
At the top of the hill lies the entrance to the Kom al-Shoqafa Catacombs dating from the first and second centuries AD. They were discovered by chance at the start of the twentieth century when the ground gave way under the weight of a donkey and the poor creature fell more than ten metres into a hole. History does not relate whether the animal survived but its fall did lead to the uncovering of more than three hundred tombs laid out along an underground network organised around a vast rotunda.
