Greek Imports Unearthed at the Saite-Persian Cemetery at Abusir

Abstract

Although the archaeological excavations of a cluster of shaft tombs in the Late Period necropolis at Abusir are far from being complete, this paper will present in detail recently unearthed Greek imports as evidence for fairly close Graeco-Egyptian relations during the end the Saite Dynasty, i.e. from the middle of the 6th century BCE to the Persian occupation of Egypt in 525 BCE, when commercial contacts were maintained with great enthusiasm by Greek merchants from the coastal areas of Asia Minor.
