Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Diocese of Egypt was a diocese of the later Roman Empire, incorporating the provinces of Egypt and Cyrenaica. Its capital was at Alexandria, and its governor had the unique title of praefectus augustalis (Augustal Prefect, of the rank vir spectabilis) instead of the ordinary vicarius. The diocese was initially part of the Diocese of the East, but around the year 371, it became a separate entity, which lasted until its territories were finally overrun by the Muslim conquest of Egypt in the 640s.
