SAVVOPOULOS KYRIAKOS is Lecturer of archaeology and history at the Alexandria Center for Hellenistic Studies and research fellow at the Alexandria and the Mediterranean Research Center of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina. He received his PhD from the Faculty of Archaeology, Leiden University (2009). His thesis concerns the contribution of the Egyptian tradition in culture, identity and public life of Alexandria in the Hellenistic and Roman periods, as an attempt to give a better understanding in Graeco-Egyptian interaction.

Description

Egyptian elements of religious character can be found in several types of material evidence, such as coinage, monumental art and architecture. All these types of material are related, in multiple ways, to the public life in Alexandria’s multicultural society, throughout the Hellenistic and Roman periods. For the sake of a thorough insight into the material evidence, the discussion will be divided in the following three chronological subperiods: 1. The early Ptolemaic period (Ptolemy I- Ptolemy V) 2. The Late Ptolemaic period (Ptolemy V- Cleopatra VII) 3. The Roman period (From Augustus to the end of the 3rd century AD/ beginning of the 4rth century AD)
