Top Ten Late Period Egyptian Artifacts


       The Late Period of Ancient Egypt refers to the last flowering of native Egyptian rulers after the Third Intermediate Period from the 26th Saite Dynasty into Persian conquests and ended with the conquest by Alexander the Great. It ran from 664 BC until 332 BC. It is often regarded as the last gasp of a once great culture, where the power of Egypt had diminished.
