    Isn't this castle upon the ruins of Alexandria Pharos?

    If that castle has any link to Ottoman Empire or Turkic people then the name of the castle means something like Sir Paper or Sir Record.

    I'm guessing it is Mamluk era, and of course they were originally Turkish slave warriors who overthrew their masters (Baybars, etc.)
