Arsinoe Divinizzata al Fianco del re Vivente Tolemeo II: Uno Studio di Propaganda Greco-Egiziana (270–246 A.C.)
The paper discusses textual and iconographic sources, both Greek and Egyptian, representing the deceased and dei fied Arsinoe II on the side of the living king Ptolemy II. Arsinoe Philadelphos is characterized as the divine protector of her husband and of his geopolitical projects between Egypt and the Mediterranean World. In the light of such characterization the paper reconsiders the passage of the Chremonidean decree where Arsinoe is mentioned among the models of Ptolemy's policy. The figure of Arsinoe is explored with regard to the interrelation between her historical character and her posthumous representation, wich was shaped in accordance with the policy of the court. An appendix is devoted to the publication of a stele representing Ptolemy II and Arsinoe II, in a Belgian private collection.
