What is Ptolemaic Period art and how is it different?
- LiliLv 73 weeks agoFavorite Answer
The Ptolemaic Period refers to a period in Egyptian history, after the Ptolemies, who were Macedonian Greeks, became the Pharaohs of Egypt. Cleopatra was a Ptolemy.
The art was sometimes Hellenistic, late-Greek-influenced, rather than traditional Egyptian, or a combination of both styles. On the site below, scroll down to "Art".Source(s): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ptolemaic_dynasty https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ptolemaic_Kingdom

The era of Ptolemaic reign in Egypt is one of the best-documented time periods of the Hellenistic period; a wealth of papyri written in Koine Greek and Egyptian have been discovered in Egypt.[
