According to modern scholars, Egypt was absorbed into the Roman Empire in 30 BC when it was declared a province by Octavian. This transition boosted the city of Alexandria into a center of both culture and trade for the Romans. Their rule was widespread, causing the eventual exclusion and alienation of native Egyptians from their government.
