      When the Ptolemies took over Egypt, they began the slow process of synchretism, a blending of Greek and Egyptian culture by equating the gods of either pantheon with one another. For example, Hermes was equated with Thoth. In return, Ptolemaic kings were depicted as pharaohs and even adopted some of their customs (such as marrying their sisters).

THE RELIGION UNDER THE PTOLEMIES. AFTER the conquest of Egypt by the Greeks in the year B.C. and on the building of the Greek city of Alexandria, Heliopolis lost much of its importance as a. school.

Few other civilizations rival Ancient Egypt in its power to capture the modern imagination, and Cleopatra VII, monarch at the end of the Ptolemaic period, has always been preeminent among its cast of characters.

In addition to epoch-spanning studies on ancestor worship, costumes and titles, new research on the ideology, religion and the building program of the Twenty-fifth Dynasty is in the foreground.
