A part of the ancient city of Ptolemais is pictured near the town of Ad Dirsiyah, about 100 km (62 miles) east of Benghazi, the second largest city in Libya.

The ancient city, founded approximately in 700 B.C, gained its name during the rule of the Ptolemaic empire.

It later became one of the capitals of the ancient Roman province of Creta et Cyrenaica, which today makes up the eastern coastal region of Libya. – Photos by Reuters
