9789004283848: The Nile Mosaic of Palestrina: Early Evidence of Egyptian Religion in Italy

The Nile Mosaic of Palestrina, dating to c. 100 B.C., presents a unique and enigmatic picture of Egypt. This study demonstrates that the mosaic depicts rituals connected with the yearly inundation of Egypt, and will explain how it was that such scenes could be found in Central Italy at this early date.

Review:

'."..grace a l'auteur..."' Robert Turcan, "Revue des Etudes Latines.""

'...grace a l'auteur...' Robert Turcan, Revue des Etudes Latines. 'Meyboom's monograph remains an indispensible resource for study of the Nile Mosaic at Praeneste. Students will benefit from the clear manner in which arguments are presented, and scholars familiar with these arguments still have much to gain from sifting through the goldmine of endnotes. It remains highly recommended.' Joshua J. Thomas, University of Oxford, Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2017.06.45

Book Description Brill, Netherlands, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. The famous Nile Mosaic of Palestrina, ancient Praeneste in central Italy, dating to c. 100 B.C., is one of the earliest large mosaics which have been preserved from the classical world. It presents a unique, comprehensive picture of Egypt and Nubia. The interpretation of the mosaic is disputed, suggestions ranging from an exotic decoration to a topographical picture or a religious allegory. The present study demonstrates that the mosaic depicts rituals connected with Isis and Osiris and the yearly Nile flood. The presence of these Egyptian religious scenes at Praeneste can be explained by the assimilation of isis and Fortuna, the tutelary goddess of Praeneste, and by the interpretation of the mosaic as a symbol of divine providence.
