Remains of "shared military and (civilian) residential areas" from the Ptolemaic era (323 to 30 BC) and from early and late in the Roman era (30 BC to 395 AD) respectively were found near Rafah some 350 kilometers (220 miles) east of Cairo, antiquities director for northern Sinai Mohammed Kamal told AFP.
