Some of the most spectacular discoveries made in Egypt during the twentieth century were in the field of Graeco-Roman funerary archaeology - the poignant mummy portraits and grave stelae, the extensive cemeteries of Alexandria and marina el-alamein, the magnificent Golden Mummies of Bahariya - and this work brings together in one volume an introduction all the categories of funerary art of the period. A wide range of material is presented - tomb decoration stelae, sarcophagi, coffins, mumm cases, funerary masks, portraits and cinerary urns in order to give the reader an overview of the various categories and their inter-relationship.
