Isiaca: Approaching Ancient Religion
The Italian traders of Thessaloniki demonstrated, with individual and collective dedications, their preference for the Egyptian cults in the sanctuary of the Egyptian cults of the city in the Late Hellenistic and Roman periods. Focusing on this phenomenon and problematizing it allows us to ask some interesting questions about religious mobility and the trading networks in the North Aegean of that period and, then, to follow the development of specific ritual traditions within the Egyptian cults. By integrating these questions and themes into a broader interdisciplinary problématique about the religious change in various sociological and political contexts, we aspire to reconsider the entire religious, economic, social, and political history of the Mediterranean in Hellenistic and Roman times.
