An Egyptian ankh necklace

The ankh appears frequently in the artistic works of ancient Egypt. In divine representations, it appears as a characteristic of the same deities, indicating the nature of another world and their eternal existence.
 
As its main meaning is life, combined with the Egyptian gods, the ankh indicates the nature of the cosmic forces that generate the universe and thus life.

 

A pendant from ancient Egypt

In 332 BC, Alexander the Great conquered Egypt with little resistance from the Persians. Alexander the Great was welcomed by the Egyptians as a "divine liberator".
 
The administration established by Alexander's successors (the Lagids or Ptolemies, the family of the pharaoh Cleopatra), was based on an Egyptian model with Alexandria as its new capital. This city served to enhance the power and prestige of Greek domination and became a seat of learning and culture, around the famous Library of Alexandria.
 
The lighthouse of Alexandria lit the way for many trading ships on which the Lagids based the country's economy, including the export of papyrus.
