HASH(0x8b361a68) out of 5 stars Very Informative 14 Nov. 2014
By Tranquility - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful book on the religious and daily life in the Roman empire with an emphasis on how the Egyptian mythos was incorporated by the Greek and Romans. While the writing style is somewhat academic, it reads fast and smoothly. There is a high emphasis on the Egyptian goddess Isis and and her incorporation with local deities of the time.

If you're looking for a book for research and documentation, you may have difficulty using this source since he combines like ideas about Roman and Greek mythology, but doesn't adhere to a strict timeline of events. However, if you are used to sifting for information, you might be fine with this.
