Tell me Muse, Who and Where are You?


Abstract


The paper sheds new light on the popularity of the nine Muses and their names in Greco-Roman Egypt. Questions raised are: How popular are the names of the Muses, and if so, in which nomes and at which period? Is there any archaeological evidence outside Alexandria for the Muses, and in which form do the Muses appear?
