The mineral components study of the archaeological glass in Tel El-kharoba, North Sinai, Egypt "Greco-Roman Period" played an important role in the identification of manufacture and damage glass in Sinai. Samples were examined by Stereo microscopic, Scanning Electron Microscope with Energy Dispersive of X-Ray Unit "SEM- EDX" and X-Ray Diffraction analysis. The research proved that the glass in this archaeological site is soda- lime- silica glass. The forming technique is blowing or mold method.

The research has also shown some physiochemical damage phenomena such as crust corrosion, pitting, dulling, iridescence, cracking, exfoliation, color change, and surface deformation by soiling. The research recommends that the treatment and maintenance of glass in Tel El-kharoba in North Sinai based on the physico-chemical composition and the corrosion phenomena identified by research.
