Du site de l'éditeur : L’originalité de la culture de l’Alexandrie antique s’est-elle affirmée dans le domaine de la langue au point qu’on puisse parler de «grec alexandrin»? C’est la question à laquelle Jean-Luc Fournet tente de répondre en rassemblant et en étudiant les particularismes linguistiques (avant tout lexicaux) que les auteurs anciens, déjà conscients du problème, ont signalés. À travers ces idiotismes de langue se dessinent les spécificités d’une cité: les mœ urs et le caractère de ses habitants, certains traits de son urbanisme et de sa culture matérielle, le paysage de son arrière-pays et les activités économiques qui y sont liées. Si certains relèvent des lieux communs que les Anciens véhiculaient sur cette mégapole et sa population, d’autres mettent en lumière des faits culturels ou matériels qui ont parfois échappé aux historiens, papyrologues ou archéologues.

Categories :  Civilization   Environment & Geography  
From This is a unique and comprehensive introduction to the ancient Mediterranean and its three major civilizations, Egypt, Greece, and Rome. It reveals a fascinating picture of the deep links between the cultures across the Mediterranean and explores the ways in which these civilizations continue to be influential to this day Beginning with the emergence of the earliest Egyptian civilization around 3200 BC, [the author] follows the history of the Mediterranean over a span of four millennia to AD 600, beyond the fall of the Roman empire in the west to the emergence of the Byzantine empire in the east. In addition to the three great civilizations, the peoples of the Ancient Near East and other lesser-known cultures such as the Etruscans, Celts, Persians, and Phoenicians are explored. The author examines the art, architecture, philosophy, literature, and religious practices of each culture, set against its social, politica, and economic background. Ample space is also given to key individuals, from Homer to Horace, the Pharaoh Akhenaten to the emperor Augustus, Alexander the Great to Julius Caesar, Jesus to Justinian, and Aristotle to Augustine.

Reviewed by Francesca: Historians have shown that fish has always played a great part in Egyptian life. This book explores in detail the importance of fish, its economic, artistic and religious significance as well as fishing tools, methods and techniques. It also describes and illustrated 20 types of fish known to the Ancient Egyptians. This is an excellent book for archeologists to identify fish bones.
