The transition from the Achaemenid to the Hellenistic period in the Levant, Cyprus and Cilicia. Radi
The aim of the Symposion is to investigate the transition from the Achaemenid to the Hellenistic period in three closely interrelated regions of the Eastern Mediterranean. Cilicia, the Levant and Cyprus belonged for centuries to the Achaemenid Empire before becoming part of the Hellenistic world with the conquest of Alexander the Great in the late 4th century BC. Although these regions culturally became part of the Hellenistic koiné, traditions from the Achaemenid period continued to play an important role for their populations. In order to define this role and answer the numerous questions connected with the transition from one period to the other, the symposion wants to bring together scholars of different fields who are mostly working separately, as the Achaemenid period is normally the topic of prehistoric, near eastern or biblical archaeology, whereas the Hellenistic period is investigated by classical archaeologists.
