62 Hazzard, R.A. IMAGINATION OF A MONARCHY Studies in Ptolemaic Propaganda
University of Toronto Press 2000 0802043135 / 9780802043139 Hardcover Near Fine with no dust jacket 
Very slight shelfwear else Fine. ; Phoenix Supplementary Volume; 300 pages; Scholars have long known that the Egyptian Ptolemaic monarchy underwent a transformation between 323 and 30 BC. The queens of that dynasty started as subordinates of the kings but ended as their superiors. Exactly when and how this change occurred has proven problematic for modern scholars. R. A. Hazzard argues that this change was put in motion by Ptolemy II, who glorified his sister ArsinoT and made acceptable a civilian style of kingship based on piety towards his real and mythical ancestors. Ptolemy's support and elevation of his sister inspired the queens of the line to assert themselves at the expense of their male associates. The process culminated in the absolute rule of Kleopatra VII after 47 BC. Hazzard presents a clear argument based on the numismatic, epigraphical, papyrological, literary, and historical sources.

Quotations form reports and diaries bring to life the arduous conditions under which the excavators labored and reveal their very different approaches. It is a triumphant story of how a few far-seeing scholars and interested amateurs combined to organize not just one grand expedition but a continuing series of meticulously planned investigations throughout Egypt and Sudan; 192 pages

Small dents and tiny tear to front board else book is fine. Small scratches and tears to front panel of DJ. Dustjacket spine is sunned. ; The 25,000 perfectly preserved papyri unearthed from the dry sands of Egypt in the past 100 years yield insights into the life of ancient Egypt that are unequalled for any other ancient civilization. Piecing together the stories and historical information contained in these documents, Naphtali Lewis has written a rich, descriptive social history of Egypt, 30 B. C. To A. D. 285. Replete with stories of individuals--such as Kronion, the 2nd-century farmer whose late life was disrupted by debt, domestic strife, and divorce--this book describes the class structure, means of livelihood, and ways of doing business in Roman Egypt. Here is the fascinating story of how the middle and lower classes lived in the towns and peasant villages, of their religion, their personal affairs, their laws, their allegiances. Lewis explores the Egyptians' growing discontent with Roman rule and the ways they voiced their discontent. In many cases, he lets them speak for themselves, in choice quotes from the papyri. To provide a context for reading Life in Egypt Under Roman Rule, Lewis includes a brief history of Roman-Egyptian relations before occupation as well as notes on the spelling of names and Roman imperial titles. Unique among the histories of the ancient world, this book describes everyday life in Roman-Egypt--and the thoughts and fears of the people who lived there.; 250 pages

85 Marlowe, John SPOILING THE EGYPTIANS
Andre Deutsch Limited 1974 0233966013 / 9780233966014 Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket 
Dustjacket has wear but no tears. ; This is the story of the technical, financial and economic colonisation of Egypt by Western Europe between Napoleon's invasion in 1798 and the British occupation in 1882. During this period a country which remained, formally, a province of the Ottoman Empire enjoying a considerable measure of autonomy, in fact fell almost entirely under the control of European foreigners. John Marlowe begins by describing how the French invasion opened up Egypt to Western influences, and how British involvement derived principally from anxiety over communications with India. He goes on to demonstrate how the economic and financial invasion of Egypt which started after the defeat and diminution of Mohamed Ali in 1840 was facilitated by the extraterritorial privileges and immunities conferred on Europeans by the Capitulations; and how this invasion was accelerated and complicated by rivalry and suspicion between the Powers, and was made lethal to Egypt by the folly of her rulers. Under Mohamet Said (1854-63) and Ismail (1853 until his deposition in 1879) the key word in Egyptian affairs was 'loan'. A defenceless country which offered rich prizes to European investors and adventurers was steered into bankruptcy by men governing in a despotic tradition who regarded the country's wealth as their own and whose only remedy for debt was to borrow more. ; 280 pages

98 Möller, Astrid NAUKRATIS Trade in Archaic Greece
Oxford University Press 2001 0198152841 / 9780198152842 Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Very faint spotting to top of textblock else book is fine. Dustjacket is protected in plastic sleeve. ; Archaic Naukratis was a busy trading place in the Western Delta of the Nile, renowned for its sanctuaries and courtesans, granting the Greeks access to Egyptian grain and luxury items. Now, more than one hundred years after the discovery and excavation of Naukratis, the author offers the first full-length analysis of the archaeology and archaic history of this important site. Although Naukratis always features in modern accounts of ancient Greek colonization, it was not a place where the Greeks could freely establish their own political and social organization--it was under the strict control of the Egyptian pharaoh and his officials. To understand the special status of Naukratis, the author takes the port of trade model, surveying the political, social, and economic background of both Late Period Egypt and archaic Greece. A major section of the book comprises an archaeological re-evaluation of the topography of archaic Naukratis and its material finds. The sanctuaries, archaic pottery styles, terracottas, faiences, statuettes, and other small finds are examined in the light of recent scholarship, and an in-depth study of the literary evidence is brought to bear on the archaeological material. This book comprises a significant contribution to our understanding of Graeco-Egyptian relations during the seventh and sixth centuries BC and also demonstrates that Polanyian economic theory can play an invaluable rôle in the ongoing debate about the concepts best employed to analyse the ancient Greek economy. ; Oxford Monographs on Classical Archaeology; 328 pages
