One of the advantages of studying Egypt under the Ptolemies and the Romans is that it preserves one of the fullest arrays of evidence for any ancient empire—archaeology, inscriiptions, monuments, art objects, literature, and documents. What does this evidence tell us about how power was projected in Egypt under the Ptolemies and Romans? Discuss at least four different modes, sources, instruments or types of power, with examples from both Ptolemaic and Roman Egypt. Please use two examples from Ptolemaic Egypt and two examples from Roman Egypt. (You do not need Ptolemaic and Roman examples for each type or demonstration of power you discuss, but your discussion should draw on evidence from across the two regimes, with attention both to those aspects that are structural to ancient Egypt and to those that are specific to the particular regime).
