October 2014 Where The Heck Is It?


This is a photo of the last remaining railway station built by the Pharaoh Nectanebo II of the 30th Dynasty. Egypt was invaded and Nectanebo deposed, thereby becoming the last Pharaoh. The fatal fight was over a dispute between the Persian Artaxerxes and Nectanebo II over passenger ticket prices and carry-on baggage rules.

Or do you have a different interpretation of this photograph? If so:

1. Where is this building?

2. Why was it built?

3. Who built it?

Bring your answers to the October ARCE meeting where you can win prizes by answering these questions.
