    DescriptionCasting a fresh and original light on the subject, this excellent monograph focuses on the transition of Egypt from the status of allied kingdom of Rome, to that of a province of the Roman Empire from the point of view of the administration and economy. Using updated documents including papyri, inscriptions, ostraka and a map of Egypt under Roman rule, the book investigates the period of Cleopatra's reign in the 50s BC to the death of Tiberius in AD 37, what areas underwent changes, where Ptolemaic traditions were allowed to continue and takes into consideration fiscal and financial issues and the consequences of Roman taxation, landholding and currency. "Augustan Egypt" includes key topics such as: the univestigated area of the fate of the Ptolemaic soldiers after the Roman conquest; a new interpretation of the data on the beginning of the Roman census in Egypt; the administration of Egypt under Augustus, from the top officials down to the chora; the changes in law and jurisdiction; and how the nome capitals of Egypt became cities of Graeco-Roman type. This is an excellent study reference for all students and scholars of ancient history.
