ARCE OC: Hellenistic Honorific Statuary in Ptolemaic Egypt

Presented by Dr. Sara E. Cole, Assistant Curator, Antiquities Department, J. Paul Getty Museum
Throughout the Hellenistic world, elite identity was closely tied to benefaction toward one’s community. This talk will explore the use of Hellenistic honorific statuary in Ptolemaic Egypt, where elites took part in a broader Hellenistic trend and adapted it to Egyptian contexts in order to appeal to multiple audiences.
