Summary:
The catalogue examines the interactions between Greek and Egyptian cultures during the nearly three hundred year period when Egypt was under Greek rule. It reveals how Egypt's Ptolemaic rulers used longstanding cultural traditions as a means of asserting power and promoting loyalty among the conquered population. It also looks at the intense familial intrigue and jockeying for position that characterized the Ptolemies.
