This conference deals with violent political and social conflicts in the Thebaid region in Upper Egypt in the Ptolemaic period (332-30 BCE). The conference highlights the rebellion as well as the efforts undertaken by the Ptolemaic state to integrate and maintain the territory in their realm. By reuniting international scholars of
different fields, namely Egyptologists, Greek and Demotic Papyrologists, Ancient Historians, Numismatists and Archaeologists, the gathering follows a holistic approach to this central episode of Hellenistic Egypt. The goal is to redefine the relationship between political and religious institutions on a local and regional level – in a moment of crisis.
