Globalizing Mediterranean Identities: The Overlapping Spheres of Egyptian, Greek and Roman Worlds at Trimithis

Anna Lucille Boozer
Issued Date: 29 Dec 2012


This article furthers recent gains made in applying globalization perspectives to the Roman world by exploring
two Romano-Egyptian houses that used Roman material culture in different ways within the city known
as Trimithis (modern day Amheida, in Egypt). In so doing, I suggest that concepts drawn from globalization
theory will help us to disentangle and interpret how homogeneous Roman Mediterranean goods may appear
heterogeneous on the local level. This theoretical vantage is broadly applicable to other regions in the Roman
Mediterranean, as well as other environments in which individuals reflected a multifaceted relationship
with their local identity and the broader social milieu.
