British Museum Online Research Catalogues: Naukratis: Greeks in Egypt

Naukratis: Greeks in Egypt
Alexandra Villing, Marianne Bergeron, Giorgos Bourogiannis,
François Leclère and Ross Thomas
With Alan Johnston, Valerie Smallwood and Susan Woodford
The Greek-Egyptian town of Naukratis in the Nile Delta was a major centre of cross-cultural contact in the ancient world. This catalogue presents the wealth of archaeological finds made in late 19th and early 20th century excavations at the site that are today dispersed in museums worldwide. Comprising Egyptian, Greek, Roman, and Cypriot objects dating from the 7th century BC to the 7th century AD, it will eventually contain over 16,000 objects.


Entries are generated directly from our collection database and might change as Museum curators discover more about the objects.
This format aims to provide a 'living' catalogue so its contents can be adapted to reflect current research.
