“Kom el-Dikka” (Arabic: “Mound of rubble”) was the neighborhood “Park of Pan” in ancient Alexandria.
Discovered in 1967 during modern construction, its finds include a set of Villas, a bath house, and a theatre.
Of special note is a Roman villa which was renovated three or four times, before it was destoryed by a fire in the third century CE. Its mosaic floor depicts images of pigeons, peacocks, quails, and parrots.
