Product description

"Pharaohs Lighthouse" or the Lighthouse of Alexandria was built by the Ptolemaic Kingdom between 280 and 247 BC. Although no photos exist, its image appears on coins and Pharaohs lighthouse was described by Julius Caesar and other historical figures as being an immense marble block structure made in 3 sections with the lower being trapezoidal, then hexagon, and a round upper tower which was capped with a temple dome. The Pharaohs Lighthouse gained legendary status as it was said to rise to the heavens and was the home of Posideon but in reality it was only between 393 and 450 ft (120 and 137 m) tall. However its strategic significance was not overstated as it was fortified and situated on the island of Pharaohs bisecting Egypt's two main harbours in the city of Alexandria.
