Images, Perceptions and Productions in and of Antiquity
This book provides access to new and exclusive research in several Antiquity and Antiquity-related fields and subjects. Revolving around four general subjects (Ancient Egypt, the Ancient Near and Middle East, the Classical World, and the Reception of Antiquity), it will provide access to new works spanning from archaeology, literature, art, reception studies, among others, allowing the reader to gain insights into some of the most current subjects of investigation in modern academia.

Helena was the Director of the first, and at the moment only, Portuguese Archaeological Project in Egypt (Apriés Palace, in Memphis) that took place from 2000 to 2010.
André Patrício is a Clinical Psychologist and an Egyptologist. He holds an MA in both areas of knowledge and is currently a PhD Fellow in Ancient History, with specialization in Egyptology, at Universidade NOVA de Lisboa, Portugal. He is a Research Assistant, integrated into the “Representations, Discourses, Materialities and Uses of the Past” Group at the Humanities Centre at the same institution.
"What lays behind the present edition, is more than a motto. First of all, the twenty essays selected for this collective contribution came from participants of the Conference “ ‘In thy arms I lost myself’ - Images, Perceptions and Productions in and of Antiquity” (hence the name of the present book), held in Lisbon by the end of 2019, and to be described as an influential event at an international level, where recognised academicians were accompanied by young researchers. So, this was a Conference that brought together Antiquity historians, as well as archaeologists, Egyptologists, Orientalists and Classicists, differences overturned by the common issue of the reception of the ancient past, deeply rooted in cultural legacy, standing in images or representation or just hard science."
