Disregard last post..
I don't really know to much about that particular incident other than what has already been spoken. My point is, you said that it was Caesar who had done it. But the truth is that Caesar was dead befor Antony and Cleopatra had fallen in love. Since Octavian (Caesar's heir and grandnephew) was the one who had attacked them, he must've been responsible for attacking Alaxandria and its library. History says that he learned of them commiting suicide by hearing it in Egypt. He would have to have landed in Alexadria itself because this was the majot coastal city and first city in Egypt to be under Roman rule. Perhaps something happened there at that time that made him want to burn Alexandria and its library. Again, I don't know to much about this incident.
