Leading international scholars present new, unpublished research on Egypt's interactions with ancient Greece and Rome during four major time periods: the Bronze Age (ca. 2000-1200 BC), Egypt's Late Period (ca. 664-332 BC), the Ptolemaic Period (323-30 BC), and the Roman Empire (ca. AD 30-300). Covering a range of materials, including archaeological finds, artworks, and texts, the research adds to a growing body of scholarship on cross-cultural exchange between Egypt, Greece, and Rome in antiquity.
