Item description for Aegyptiaca Romana: Nilotic Scenes and the Roman Views of Egypt (Religions in the Graeco-Roman World) by M. J. Versluys...

A discussion of the meaning of the many Egyptian and egyptianising artefacts (Aegyptiaca) known from the Roman world using as its point of departure the so-called Nile scenes or Nilotic landscapes. Part I is an illustrated catalogue of Nilotic landscapes in the Roman world with an iconological and contextual interpretation of the genre. The conclusions thus reached are used and commented upon in Part II, providing the reader with two essays on, firstly, the meaning of Roman Aegyptiaca in general and, secondly, on the role this material culture played in the Roman perception of - and discourse on - Egypt.
