Criscuolo's main research field is history, institutions and
epigraphical and papyrological documents of the Hellenistic period.
In particular, she has devoted some publications to aspects of
Ptolemaic administration, outside Egypt as well, in its relation
with the Egyptians and as expression of the Greek government,
particularly in the law level administration of villages. Some of
the problems analysed, both administrative and economic, were risen
from the edition of III and II century B.C. papyri. She has
moreover dealt with historical and ideological problems on some
Ptolemaic queens (Arsinoe II, Cleopatra VII). Criscuolo has
published Ptolemaic papyri, Greek inscriptions from Ptolemaic and
Roman Egypt, Greek inscriptions from Northern Italy, Greek stamped
amphora handles. She has particularly studied the Greek and Latin
epigrahical documentation from Thebe, Panopolis, Rhodes and
Cyrene. She has also made researches on aspects of the economy in
kind and the 'monetisation' of Ptolemaic Egypt and on a monograph
on gift-estates in Hellenistic kingdoms.
Now she coordinates an international research group on Greeks and the land.
