Dr Ellis-Evans research interests currently fall into three categories. Firstly, he is in the final stages of revising his PhD thesis for publication. This was a regional history of Lesbos and the the Troad from the 5th c. BC – 1st c. AD which explored the political, cultural, and social history of regional integration. Secondly, a related project which has come out of his PhD research involves reconstructing the monetary history of this region through a study of all the coinage produced at mints in this area from the 6th – 1st c. BC. Finally, the next big project which he has begun to work on is a social and cultural history of literary production in the Greek city-states of the Hellenistic period.
