Minor creasing to wraps and base of spine. ; Memphis was one of the great melting pots of Mediterranean and African culture during the reigns of the heirs of Alexander and under the Roman Empire, a vibrant and complex community well after the end of the age of its ancient Pharaonic founders. For too long, its importance during this critical period has been wrongly eclipsed by the younger city of Alexandria. This book challenges such assumptions by taking a closer look at Memphis through the lens of the rich material excavated there by Flinders Petrie over a century ago, and exhibited in University College London’s Petrie Museum. These finds bring alive the diversity of the city’s inhabitants and raise questions, still relevant today, about the representations and realities of ethnic groups. This book presents the excavation background to the finds, their manufacturing processes and their cultural implications. It is accompanied by a CD ROM that illustrates this informative and neglected material. ; UCL Institute of Archaeology Publications; 120 pages

A couple of corners very slightly bumped. ; Egypt, with its ever-growing wealth of evidence from the papyri, has in recent decades been one of the liveliest areas of scholarship on the later Roman Empire. This volume collects two dozen articles on the social, economic, and administrative history of Egypt. In these studies some of the main themes of Roger Bagnall's work are visible, in particular attempts to explore the possibilities for quantifying not only questions like the burden of taxation or the distribution of land-ownership, but more tantalizing and controversial matters like the rate at which the population of Egypt was Christianized. ; Variorum Collected Studies Series, 758; 324 pages

American Research Center in Egypt, Inc. / Yale University Press 2002 0300092245 / 9780300092240 Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket Illustrated by Patrick Godeau 
Very light shelfwear to book and DJ. Dustjacket is protected in plastic sleeve. ; An ancient church in the Coptic Monastery of St Antony at the Red Sea contains a unique cycle of 13th-century wall paintings. They constitute by far the most complete and best-preserved iconographic programme of Christian paintings to come from medieval Egypt. Ignored for centuries because they were covered with soot and overpainting, these compelling images have recently undergone conservation. This volume reproduces the cleaned paintings. It also describes and analyzes the amalgam of Coptic, Byzantine and Arab styles represented, and the social world of the artists that created the images. This book celebrates a unique program of conservation work conducted by the American Research Centre in Egypt. Essays by Bolman, Tim Vivian, Michael Jones, William Lyster, Adriano Luzi & Luigi De Cesaris, Gawdat Gabra, Sidney H. Griffith, Father Maximous El-Anthony, Elizabeth E. Oram, and Birger A.
