< ALL THE COLLECTIONS

The conquest of Egypt in 332 by Alexander -who was hailed as a liberator from the Persian rule- but also the Diadochi (Successors) (Macedonian Dynasty 332-304 BC and the Ptolemaic Dynasty) signalled a new era for the country, the Hellenistic (332-30 BC), that was characterized in religion and art by the interaction of the Greek with the Egyptian culture and the emergence of a mixed style.
