As a fan of Egyptian religion/mythology I was pleasantly surprise to find a small gallery of Egyptian artifacts in a Greek museum. So, here’s some history that provides context as to why it exists.
When Alexander the Great conquered Egypt in 332 BC the priests of the Egyptian god Amun “recognized” him to be a son of the god. He founded the city Alexandria in 331 BC, and he made Greek the official language. After him, Greeks ruled over Egypt until the death of the last Queen Cleopatra VII - who was a Greek herself - in 30 BC. She’s the famous beauty who had affairs with Caesar and Mark Antony, and committed suicide by poisoning herself,
After Cleopatra’s death Egypt was annexed as a province of Greece. The result is a mixed style of religiousness and creative art which drew from both cultures.
