Book Description:

Celebrated as queen, politician, and lover, Cleopatra remains an object of fascination more than two thousand years after her death. In this beautifully illustrated new study, Sally-Ann Ashton deconstructs the image of Cleopatra to uncover the complex historical figure behind the myth. Incorporating Ashton's findings from her own recent survey of a temple of Cleopatra in Egypt, this book is the first to consider Cleopatra from a wholly Egyptian perspective. Drawing on literary, archaeological, and art historical evidence, Ashton paints an intimate and compelling portrait of the most famous Queen of Egypt.

About the Author:

Sally-Ann Ashton studied at King’s College London and is currently Senior Assistant Keeper in the Department of Antiquities at the Fitzwilliam Museum, University of Cambridge. She has published extensively on many aspects of later periods of Egyptian history and culture, including Ptolemaic royal sculpture from Egypt, the last queens of Egypt, Petrie’s Ptolemaic and Roman Memphis and Roman Egyptomania. She has worked on excavations in Greece, Libya, and Egypt and is currently involved in projects at Karnak temple.
