Cyrene. Libya. One of the Greek inscribed stone tablets found the courtyard of the Cyrene sculpture museum which is adorned with many marble sculptures and architectural remains from the ancient city. Although the museum is only one room its collection rivals any museum and it contains many great examples of the richness of Cyrene and marble finery that once adorned its ancient buildings. Cyrene which was founded by Greek immigrants from the little Greek island of Thera –Santorini- around 631 BC is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is North Africa’s most complete ancient Greek city.
