Description:

 

The Hellenic-American Cultural Association of Colorado proudly presents a symposium on Cleopatra and Ptolemaic Egypt.    We are delighted to have Professor Peter Hunt and Professor Noel Lenski from the University of Colorado along with Professor Roger Bagnall from Columbia University and New York University

 

Ptolemaic Egypt began when Ptolemy I Soter proclaimed himself Pharaoh of Egypt in 305 BC and ended with the death of queen Cleopatra VII of Egypt and the Roman conquest in 30 BC. The Ptolemaic Kingdom was a powerful Hellenistic state.    It extended from southern Syria in the east, to Cyrene to the west, and south to Nubia. Alexandria became the capital city and a center of Greek culture and trade.  

             
This symposium will be held on Saturday, October 29, 2011 at the University of Denver, Sturm Hall, Room 254, from 1pm to 5:30pm.  All are welcome.  Dinner will follow at Piatti Restaurant in Cherry Creek at 6pm.  Each individual is responsible for payment at the restaurant.  For questions, details, and dinner RSVPs please contact Alex Krikos at 970-443-5370 or at
