My wider research interests include (past and present representations of Alexander the Great aside): 

  • Hellenistic Literature, especially Greek poetry and mythography.
  • Early Christianity and the writings of its theologians. 
  • Late Antiquity, especially (late) Greek Imperial literature and history. 
  • Numismatics, especially Ptolemaic and Imperial coinage.
