In that same money, the metropolis was started the excellent library Bayt al-Ḥikmah (“House of Wisdom”), which, till the sack of town by the Mongols in 1258, functioned as a massive repository for the string of works from your Hellenistic convention that have been translated into Arabic Literature.
