Item description for Les Empereurs du Nil by W. Clarysse...
This large and attractively presented volume explores the traditions and changes in the government, culture, society and religion of Graeco-Roman Egypt. The first part of the book presents the interaction of Rome with Egypt, the country's economy and trade, the government and army and the everyday life of Roman Egyptians. The second part examines Egypt's religion during this period of transition which combined old beliefs with new foreign cults and saw the emergence of Christianity. Half of the volume comprises a beautifully illustrated catalogue of sculptures, reliefs, paintings, coins, papyri, ceramics, glass and many more objects which demonstrate Egypt's rich culture during this fascinating time.
