About this item
Describing and explaining change in Egypt during the fourth BCE, classicists and Egyptologists focus primarily on Alexander the Great's conquest and the takeover by Alexander's general, Ptolemy son of Lagus, who in the fullness of time, became pharaoh, and the founding figure in a ruling dynasty that was to last almost three hundred years. Their topics include the Greek wars: the fight for Egypt, the role of coinage in the political economy of fourth-century Egypt, the Satrap Stele of Ptolemy: a reassessment, and identity and cross-cultural interaction in early Ptolemaic Alexandria: cremation in context. The seven papers are from a September 2011 conference at Macquarie University. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
