Egypt from Alexander to the Copts by Roger S. Bagnall

Egypt from Alexander to the Copts: An Archaeological and Historical Guide by Roger S. Bagnall, Dominic W. Rathbone
Requirements: .PDF reader, 356 MB
Overview: After its conquest by Alexander the Great in 332 bc, Egypt was ruled for the next 300 years by the Ptolemaic dynasty founded by Ptolemy I, one of Alexander’s generals. With the defeat of Cleopatra VII in 30 bc, Egypt became a province of the Roman Empire, and later of the Byzantine Empire. For a millennium it was one of the wealthiest, most populous and important lands of the multicultural Mediterranean civilization under Greek and Roman rule. The thousand years from Alexander to the Arab conquest in ad 641 are rich in archaeological interest and well documented by 50,000 papyri in Greek, Egyptian, Latin, and other languages. But travelers and others interested in the remains of this period are ill-served by most guides to Egypt, which concentrate on the pharaonic buildings. This book redresses the balance, with clear and concise descriptions related to documents and historical background that enable us to appreciate the fascinating cities, temples, tombs, villages, churches, and monasteries of the Hellenistic, Roman, and Late Antique periods. Written by a dozen leading specialists and reflecting the latest discoveries and research, it provides an expert visitor’s guide to the principal cities, many off the well-worn tourist paths. It also offers a vivid picture of Egyptian society at differing economic and social levels.

Macedonian Armies after Alexander 323-168 BC by Nicholas Sekunda

Macedonian Armies after Alexander 323-168 BC (Men-at-Arms) by Nicholas Sekunda,‎ Peter Dennis (Illustrator)
Requirements: .PDF reader, 5.7 Mb
Overview: Macedonia, the heartland of Alexander’s dominions, was ruled first by the heirs of Antipater, Alexander’s regent, and then by the descendents of Alexander’s general Antigonus I Monophthalmus (‘the One-Eyed’). For well over a century the largely mercenary armies of Alexander’s successors imposed their influence in matters of military costume, kit, doctrine and tactics over the whole of the Near East, while absorbing local military practices.

After Rome’s decisive defeat of Carthage in 202 BC and the subsequent Roman dominance over the Western Mediterranean, Macedonia came under increasing pressure from the Romans. Three wars between the two powers culminated in the Roman victory at Pydna in 168 BC, which marked the final destruction of Alexander’s empire and established Roman authority over the Near East.

Drawing upon a wide array of archaeological and written sources and written by a noted authority on the Hellenistic period, this survey of the organisation, battle history and appearance of the armies of Alexander’s successors is lavishly illustrated with specially commissioned full-colour artwork. It is an essential resource for all those interested in the development of warfare in the Eastern Mediterranean and Near East in the turbulent centuries following the death of Alexander.
