The Second Sophistic, Identity, and Egypt: Sarapion's Honorary Inscription and Local Identities in the Roman Empire

Hometown: Gainesville, Florida

Department: Classical Studies

Advisor: William Hutton


My Honors Thesis will investigate how Greek-speaking Egyptians in the Roman empire negotiated and performed their identities by looking at an inscription from Koptos, Egypt. This project allows detailed textual analysis and study of material culture to give us a view into the life and struggles of Greek-speaking Egyptians in the Roman empire, a type of person not often represented in the literary record.
