When Empires Collide: Egypt vs Rome From Alexander to Augustus

Sarah Griffiths & Birgitta Hoffmann

Antony and Cleopatra – only one of many Roman-Egyptian encounters

Following the conquest of Egypt by Alexander the Great in 332 BC, the Ptolemaic Dynasty ruled Egypt for nearly 300 years, presiding over one of the most wealthy, prestigious and powerful countries in the Mediterranean world.

But a new power was emerging in the West: as the Ptolemies succumbed to sibling rivalries, wars and civil unrest, Rome watched, waited and then stepped in.

Sarah Griffiths and Birgitta Hoffman will explore the changing political relationship between Egypt and Rome and trace the series of catastrophic events leading to Rome’s annexation of Egypt and the end of more than 3000 years of Pharaonic rule.
