Recherches sur les productions figurées faites pour les personnes privées vivant en Egypte à l'époque ptolémaïque

Abstract : This research on egyptian society during ptolemaic period is based on archaeological documents elaborated for private people, painted gravestones, gravestones with relief and statues sculpted in stone, in egyptian, graeco-alexandrian and graeco-egyptian styles. Each monument is presented in a descriptive catalogue, then in a more general chapter, in a comparative study to characterize each kind of production. These archaeological monuments elaborated for private people are integrated into a sociocultural study. They show how Graeco-macedonians and Egyptians living in ptolemaic Egypt were able to preserve their own cultural identity, to come into contact and to form, from the end of the hellenistic period, a graeco-egyptian society. The study of graeco-egyptian portraits and of egyptian draped statues show that the development of this kind of production is connected with the realistic evolution of egyptian style. The graeco-macedonian presence in Egypt was probably decisive. However, if the contacts between Graeco-macedonians and Egyptians were real from the ptolemaic period, they will not find an iconographical and stylistic expression before the beginning of the roman period.
