The growth of early modern London. Source: Wrigley (1987) 162. In order to put this pattern into perspective, we may once again draw on the example of early modern London as the prime example of continuous growth (Figure 7).

There are many more things we would need to know to get an idea of how Alexandria ‘worked’: the organisation of its supplies, its impact on other cities beyond Memphis, the extent to which elite spending shifted to the new centre, and how the driving forces behind the secondary expansion of the city differed from the original ones. The question of how the apparent expansion of the Jewish element in the city’s population in the late Ptolemaic and early Roman periods might have interfered with the proposed S-shape of the metropolitan growth curve is another issue worth considering.
