Institutional history: 

The Graeco-Roman Museum first opened in 1892, before moving to a larger space in 1895. The extraordinary quality of the collection reflects the luxurious nature of ancient Alexandria and the surrounding area, although material from other places such as the Faiyum are also housed in this museum. Although some objects are from archaeological excavations, there are also donations of material found because of routine construction work.

Notes on distribution: 

Artefacts from the 1886 Tell Dafana excavations are in the Bibliotheca Alexandrina.
