The papers included in this volume are the result of nearly two decades of study of the history and historiography of the encounter between the Greeks and the civilizations of ancient northeast Africa: Egypt and Nubia.The topics span almost two millennia and include subjects as diverse as the origin of Greek Egyptology and the organization of the ancient Nubian slave trade. The studies have two concerns in common: to describe the basic character of Greek historiography of the Nile valley civilizations and to consider how best to reconstruct, given the fragmentary extant sources, the history of Greek relations with the peoples of ancient Egypt and Nubia. Studies include: "Hecataeus, Herodotus, and the Birth of Greek Egyptology," "Hecataeus of Abdera's History of Egypt," and "Alexander in Egypt: Continuity or Change," among others.
