Alan Bowman

British Academy

Egypt as a historical subject has never lacked attention in the field of international political history but it is also almost uniquely fruitful as a source of evidence for little narratives and as a historiographical battlefield. This chapter tries to describe and explain, from an explicitly classical perspective, aspects of the relationship between some ancient and some modem perceptions of Egypt and the role which ‘history in’ and ‘history of’ the classical world has played and continues to play in shaping those perceptions.

Keywords:   Greeks, Egypt perceptions, classical world, ancient culture
