Along the coast from Djelibeybi the Seriph of Al-Khali lived in the fabulous palace of the Rhoxie, which was said to have been built in one night.

Annotations[]

The Seriph's palace, the Rhoxie, has a resonance with the Alhambra - a famous Moorish palace in Grenada, Spain, which became a synonym for an impressive building, and later became a common cinema name along with Odeon and, yes, Roxy.

Building palaces in one night recalls the exploits of the Djinns of the Arabian Nights.
