Abstract and Keywords
This article considers changes in Egyptian use of portraiture, which occurred around the same time as the establishment of Roman dominion. The most obvious change is a sudden increase in numbers of naturalistic portraits as well as in media, and the use of such portraiture not just by the ruling families and the highest levels of administrative and religious dignitaries but also by local elites. The article discusses imperial portraits, private portraits, and mummy decoration.
