PCMA scholar’s seminar: Ethnic composition of temple personnel in Ptolemaic Fayum

The PCMA UW Research Centre in Cairo organised another lecture of PCMA scholarship-holders. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the events remain closed to the public.

Dr. Joanna Wilamowska talked about the ethnic composition of temple personnel in Ptolemaic Fayum:

Abstract: “Priests occupied a privileged position in Ptolemaic Egypt. Research on this group significantly contributes to expanding our knowledge of society in this period. This study intends to trace ethnic and social relations in Ptolemaic Egypt by discussing the ethnic composition of priests and temple workers in the Fayum area.”

The seminar was held on Tuesday, 19th October 2021.
