View looking southwest at the Inner (on the left) and the Outer (on the right) harbors of Alexandria Troas.

To appreciate the full vista of the Panorama, please Download at "Max Size Available" (click above right)—it is about 3000 pixels wide!

At Alexandria Troas boats would wait for favorable winds before beginning their difficult journey clockwise and northeastwards up through the Dardanelles (ancient Hellespont) — through which the current flows in the opposite direction — from northeast to southwest!

At one time Constantine thought of making Alexandria Troas his capital instead of Byzantium (modern Istanbul).
