Re: Persia 30: Pericles and the Amarna Revival

Great! I agree with you that there was tremendous connections between Ancient Egypt and Greece. The ancient greek mysteries were very close to the Egyptian mysteries. Both in their "inner meaning" as well as their theatrical character.

The Egyptian Pharoah's were setting up colonies around the mediteranian world.

However, Grrek democracy, as imperfect as it was, limited the development of the absolute manarch and the absolute deity, the aten.

There was no such limitation in the Egypt of Amenhotep III!
