    Ok, I didn't buy the game. But I'm gonna complain anyway.

    I have noticed that Alexandria is named "Ra-Kedet", which is the Kemetic (ancient Egyptian) name. It doesn't make sense to use this name since nobody would recognize this. And even if they wanted to use the natives names of cities, they should at least be consistent. Either all cities should be in the native form or all in the English one.

    I say this because Ra-Kedet is used, while Thebes and Memphis are also used. This is weird, since the Kemetic names are Men-nefer/Inbu-Hedj and Waset. Other examples are Cairo (instead of al-Qahira), Seville (instead of Sevilla) and Cologne (instead of Köln).

    But Alexandria in Egypt is clearly the most well-known name. Also, many cities share their names with other cities, such as London.
