Description

By revealing the dynamics between central and local power in Egypt, Joe Manning demonstrates that Ptolemaic economic power ultimately shaped Roman Egyptian social and economic institutions. His book offers a framework for understanding the structure of the Ptolemaic state and economy, as well as the relationship between the new Ptolemaic economic institutions and the ancient Egyptian legal traditions of property rights. Historians of Egypt and the Hellenistic world will welcome the volume.
