Grossinvestition Oasen: den Persern auf der Spur

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


One of the focus areas of investment in Persian Period Egypt (6th–4th c. BCE) have been the oases in the Western Desert, especially the oasis of El-Khargeh. It encompassed major infrastructural, representational, and religious projects in a rather marginal area from the perspective of the Persian core area and even from a Nile valley perspective. The paper addressed the scope and potential motivation behind this investment and the question to which degree this has to be viewed as local, regional or cross-regional venture.
