Relationships with other locations
Relationships with other locationsThis displays relationships with locations within which the item falls, and relationships which it contains. We only display the immediate relationships, not a full series. If a location falls within Cyrene, we do not also display its relationship to Cyrenaica; similarly, if Cyrene contains the Agora, we do not also display the items within the Agora at the same level.
Related locationsThis is a location within which a location falls. Most of these are conceptual – for example a Roman Province, a Hellenistic Kingdom or the chapter of a book – so many locations have multiple parent locations.
- Outlying Oases (Reynolds) forms part of Tripolitania (Reynolds)

Reynolds, IRT, Chapter 12: The limitane settlements of the frontier zone lay behind a protective line of fortresses, built and manned by legionary detachments. The one of these, Ghériat el-Garbia (see Introduction to the Wadi Zem-Zem) lay on the Wadi Zemzem, on the forward edge of settled territory, covering one of the main caravan-routes from the south. The other two, Ghadames (the classical Cidamae, see 907) and Bu-Ngem, were pushed forward as outposts on the line of the other two main routes from the interior, the one following the modern western boundary of the territory, between the Sand Sea and the Hamada el-Hamra, the other being the eastern route to the Fezzan.
