Example text

A Carian grave-stele of 550–530 BC, for example, has a segmental head, and is decorated with incised carvings: at the top of the stele, following the line of the segmental head, are the vulture’s wings with sun-disc and uræi above images of a man taking leave of a woman that are entirely East Greek in style (Plate 1). 22 Egyptian art and architecture were certainly conservative, but the conscious Egyptian Revival of the Saïte period set the precedent for what was to follow. Philæ acquired buildings in the reigns of the native Pharaohs of XXX Dynasty (380–343 BC), Nectanebo I and II, in the Ptolemaïc (Hellenistic) period (332–30 BC, notably in the reign of Ptolemy XII Neos Dionysus [80–51 BC]), and in the reigns of the Roman Emperors Augustus (27 BC-AD 14) and Trajan (AD 98–117).

Eighth century BC), in the Odyssey, tells us of the visit to Egypt of Menelaus,1 and Greeks secured settlements in Egypt from around the seventh century BC. 425 BC) travelled in Egypt and left us an extremely valuable account in his Histories, which were subsequently regarded as prime sources by later writers, including Diodorus Siculus (fl. 60–30 BC) and Strabo (64 BC-after AD 24). The Greeks were aware of the antiquity of Egyptian civilisation, and were impressed by its religion, 1 The Legend of ‘The Egyptian Helen’, the subject of Die ägyptische Helena, an opera (premiered at Dresden in 1928) by Hugo von Hofmannsthal (1874–29), with music by Richard Strauss (1864–1949).

In Alexandria cultural life flourished, and a great museum and library, presided over by Isis and Serapis, were established. Egyptian deities were accorded the same status as that of the Greek gods and goddesses. Gradually, however, the Greeks themselves became Egyptianised, and many deities mingled by a curious process of syncretism that was a feature of the Græco-Roman world. Greek rule came to a close after the Battle of Actium in 31 BC, after which the last Queen, Cleopatra VII, committed suicide, and Egypt was annexed by Rome in 30 BC, although its status was rather odd in that it was retained as a favoured province by Augustus, who began a process of moving monuments within Egypt, and also removing monuments (such as obelisks) to beautify Alexandria and Rome itself.
