Some days later the dey was deported, as well as the greater part of the janissaries.
Ali, the capitan pasha, was commander-in-chief, and he had with him Chulouk Bey of Alexandria, commonly called Scirocco, and Uluch Ali, dey of Algiers.
If the dey had left, the three beys remained.
The dey of Algiers, who saw the opening, reversed the order of his squadron, and fell on the right of the centre.
Traces exist of the vaults in which were stored the treasures of the dey.
