The book Connecting the Isiac Cults by Tomáš Glomb focuses on the spread of the Egyptian cults (particularly cults of Isis and Sarapis) in the Hellenistic Aegean and Asia Minor. The book uniquely combines established historiographical approaches with quantitative spatial analysis methods and asks the question: "How did political, economic, or geographical factors contribute to this cultural transmission?" Tomáš Glomb thus follows up on the results of the interdisciplinary team of the project GEHIR and interprets the quantitative results using the rich context of political and economic activities of Ptolemaic Egypt and its inhabitants.
