  • In the historiography of the Greeks in Egypt, the « battle of Pelusium » is usually considered as a turning point. Yet, few Greek military settlements (to say nothing about the misleading stratopeda) can, obviously and exclusively, be attributed to the Saitic period. On the contrary, archaeological and epigraphical evidence points out to some continuity between pre and post 525 Greek presence, mainly military rather than commercial, in the eastern Delta.
