I do know of Roman ruins but cannot find anything that is said to be older than that. Even ancient ruins in old Tyre on the mainland would be great if they exist.

Thank you, Spitamenes.
This documentary focusing on geneticist Spencer Wells' work has a different focus from Alexander but does have some shots of modern Tyre (I think... watched it a while ago). Looks like a nice place when it's not under siege. ;)
