The most famous library of antiquity was Alexandria believed to have been founded by Ptolemy I Soter (Ptolemios) who reigned until 248 B.C. It was originally conceived, not as a library, but as a research center, similar to Aristotle's Library in Athens, which was to hold the collected knowledge of the world. It was the first systematic and serious collection of documentation on physics, literature, mathematics, medicine, astrology, biology and engineering. The library's estimated holdings were circa 700,000 rolls and included writings of the Greeks as well as other civilizations.
