An Egyptian ankh necklace

The cross of life ankh (the symbol "☥" in ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs) is a one of the most famous of Egyptian symbols.
 
During ancient Egypt, the ankh represents "life" in Egyptian mythology. It was the symbol of the gift offered by gods to humans: a happy eternal life in the lands of Osiris.
 

A pendant from ancient Egypt

Egypt became a province of the Roman Empire in 30 BC, after the defeat of Mark Antony and Cleopatra VII by Octavian (the future emperor Augustus) at the battle of Actium.
 
The Romans depended heavily on grain shipments from Egypt. Due to that the Roman legion (under the control of a prefect appointed by the Emperor) suppressed revolts, strictly enforced the collection of heavy taxes and prevented the bandit attacks (attacks that were becoming more and more widespread).
 
Alexandria became an increasingly important center on the trade route to the East, as Rome's demand for oriental exoticism increased.
