The Art of Death in Graeco-Roman Egypt by Judith A. Corbelli
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Some of the most spectacular discoveries made in Egypt during the twentieth century were in the field of Graeco-Roman funerary archaeology - the poignant mummy portraits and grave stelae, the extensive cemeteries of Alexandria and marina el-alamein, the magnificent Golden Mummies of Bahariya - and this work brings together in one volume an introduction all the categories of funerary art of the period. A wide range of material is presented - tomb decoration stelae, sarcophagi, coffins, mumm cases, funerary masks, portraits and cinerary urns in order to give the reader an overview of the various categories and their inter-relationship.
