The metrics are unclear.Ok but given Alexandria was an ‘international’ polyglot city with a giant jewish and syrian and greek population... it doesnt seem to me that one should point to it’s achievements if one is trying to argue the primacy of the influence of Egyptian culture on The West.
I am not suggesting Egypt was some backwater... clearly they did or transmit some of their culture to the west either by soft power or military power.
All i am asking is.... compared with mesopotamia .... etc... would you agree or disagree with the following.
1. Mesopotamian civilization had more influence than Ancient Egypt.
2. Mesopotamian civilization had less influence than Ancient Egypt.
3. The question is unanswerable.
It's good to think about I guess. Less good for providing a pat answer.
