Pompey's Pillar

Has nothing to do with Pompey. The story behind the name refers to the possible burial ground of the Roman general when he fled to Egypt and was assassinated after losing a major battle in Greece against Caesar. The red granite column was probably built to honour the Emperor Diocletain.

Today it stands 25 meters high and is the tallest ancient monument in Alexandria.
