The Cultural Policies of the Early Ptolemies: Alexandria and Beyond

William Greenwalt, Professor of Classics, Santa Clara University

As Alexander’s empire dissolved and the Ptolemies established their control over Egypt and outlying areas, they were faced with a challenge: establishing their dynastic legitimacy among different domestic constituencies while simultaneously facing international challenges. Greenwalt will discuss the strategies used by the early Ptolemies and their ramifications.
