    This book is dedicated to the memory of Honor Frost and features her complete bibliography plus a previously unpublished article on the relationship between Byblos and Egypt, one of her favourite themes. In addition to the excavation of two Punic warships at Marsala, Sicily, Honor Frost concentrated much of her research on marine anchors. Following a presentation by an oceanographic team from the University of Patras of the underwater context of Alexandria, its geomorphological formation and the dangers for navigators, the volume includes a catalogue of more than 150 anchors. These have been discovered along 15 km of coastline, between the area of the port and Maamoura, by three underwater archaeological missions, Egyptian, French and Greek. The finds bear witness to the strong concentration of maritime trade in the vicinity of this major Egyptian city. This work has enjoyed the financial support of the Honor Frost Foundation
