Their walls are covered with limy solution and partially painted, and a part of tombs reconstructed, opened and expanded. It means that several generations of residents of Alexandria used them" — Aiman Ashmawi, one of participants of excavation tells. His team as the archeologist notes, has opened a huge segment of the antique cemetery during excavation which the Egyptian scientists conducted on the place of construction of the new railroad to the west from the city whose predecessor has been partially destroyed during World War II. They managed to find in this point several architectural complexes constructed at the time of Cleopatra and others late Ptolemeev at once.
