From the Newletter of the POLISH CENTRE OF

Nr. 13 August 2005:
On March 16-17, the Bibliotheca Alexandrina was the site of an international colloquium
held by the Centre on “The auditoria of Kom el-Dikka in the cultural and educational life of
the late antique city”. The event, which was attended by over twenty leading authorities on
ancient education and intellectual life, was the idea of Professor Ewa Wipszycka from
Warsaw University and Professor Roger Bagnall from Columbia University. It was made
possible thanks to financial support from Professor Bagnall and a special contribution from
Warsaw University. The Société Archéologique d’Alexandrie and its President Professor
Mustafa al-Abbadi joined in the proceedings and offered a dinner party at the Pharos
University Club.
