“At the Limits of Hellenism: Egyptian Priests and the Greek World”

This project is an exploration of the ancient history and modern historiography of cultural exchange between Greeks and Egyptians in the Classical and Hellenistic periods, and the early Roman empire. Beginning with the second book of Herodotus’ “Histories”, I examine four texts that represent key encounters between the Greek world and Egyptian priests, the cultural and intellectual élite of Egyptian civilization. In drawing on both Greek and Egyptian sources, and engaging with contemporary anthropological and post-colonial studies, I rethink received models and narratives of cross-cultural interaction and identity in antiquity.
