C. , Egypt became the center of the Hellenistic world, attracting men and women from other parts of the Mediterranian area. In this cosmopolitan and moblie society, Greek women of the ruling class had unprecedented opportunities and were able to employ some legal freedoms enjoyed by their Egyptian counterparts. Using evidence from a wide variety of sources including literature, papyri, inscriptions, coins, and terra-cotta figurines, Sarah Pomeroy discusses women ranging from queens such as Arsinoe II and Cleopatra VII to Jewish slaves working on a Greek estate. ; 241 pages
