COLLECTIONS EGYPTIAN ANTIQUITIES
< ALL THE COLLECTIONS

With the defeat by the Romans and the death of the last Ptolemaic queen, the famous Cleopatra VII, Egypt turned into a Roman province (30 BC – 395 AD). Art was restricted to the production of objects of minor arts and elaborate jewellery made of precious metals and gems, with the exception of the glorious Fayum portraits and the known Coptic textiles.
