I think a lot of people would be bitterly disappointed about a lot of the contents of this and other ancient libraries that were eventually lost. Lots of  commentaries on Homer by hellenistic Beckmessers and Headmasters and books on magic and divination.
And, sure, maybe some lost Sophocles tragedies or Democritus or the 2nd book of Aristotle's Poetics ;)
Struck by the sounds before the sun,
I knew the night had gone.
The morning breeze like a bugle blew
Against the drums of dawn.

Oh yes, like when you see an immense room full of impressive old books then realise they’re all theology. :(

To me it looked like the opening scene to the 1979 Buck Rogers movie.  :)

We'll be seeing more and better black hole imagery as the year progresses.
