The early Greek residents to arrive in Egypt were very much regarded as foreigners and were subject to all sorts of restrictions. Gradually, however, the barriers were broken down as closer connections were established with the Greek mainland and new trading centres such as Naukratis were established. This volume studies the large amount of Greek imported pottery found in Egypt and assesses what the pottery can tell us about the nature of Egyptian-Greek relationships, Greek settlement in Egypt and international trading patterns.
