Andrew Connor is an Ancient Historian. He defended his dissertation, "Temples as Economic Agents in Early Roman Egypt: The Case of Tebtunis and Soknopaiou Nesos" on November 13, 2014. He received a BA in History from the Honors Tutorial College of Ohio University and an MA in Ancient History from the University of Cincinnati. From 2011-2012, he was the Burt Hodge Hill Fellow at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens. His dissertation explored the economic underpinnings of religion in Roman Egypt, especially in Tebtunis and Soknopaiou Nesos, two villages in the Fayum region. His interests include documentary papyrology, Egypt (ancient and modern), the practice and rhetoric of religion in the Greek and Roman world, and the ancient economy.  
In addition to his work on Egypt, Andrew has also presented on the use of space in Roman villas and has studied Hellenistic and early Roman coins from the South Stoa wells at Corinth, the results of which he presented at the AIA/APA Joint Annual Meeting.
