Lake Mareotis

Lake Mareotis, also known as Mariut, Mariout, or Maryut is a salt lake[?] of about 250 square km in northern Egypt. It is separated from the Mediterranean Sea by the narrow isthmus on which the city of Alexandria was built. The lake shore is home to fisheries and saltworks[?]. Some of the marshy areas around the lake have been reclaimed for new building as the city grows.
