Helena of Egypt is my first artist in my awesome ladies series and – just like Sahakdukht and Merit-Ptah, there's not much known about her.
Her works have been lost to history, except a mosaic copy found in the ruins of Pompeii.
The work in question is a scene of Alexander defeating the Persian ruler, Darius III at the battle of Issus in Asia Minor.
There is a picture of the mosaic, which I found on theriveriawoman.com.
This post: https://arthistorygrrrls.com/tag/helena-of-egypt/ says that Helena lived and worked in Egypt in the 4th century BC. Her father Timon was also an artist and an instructor.
This is a very short post, and it's a shame that there's so little information on these awesome ladies.
Next up is the first author of the group – Hypatia. :)
