Egyptian temples in verona

Recommended Posts

I have been living in verona for a while now and recently picked up a book on the Roman town. It stated that there was a large temple of Isis and serapis, a temple of harpocrates, a sphinx and "several other smaller egyptian temples". I have done some independent research which has confirmed this. The question is why was there so much. I know that verona was a large and important roman city. I. Also know that Isis worship was important, although more in the form of cults than large temples of her and serapis. Any ideas? Was there simply a large egyptian population there, and if so. Why?

Am I mistaken in thinking this is a rare occurrence, were there many egyptian temples outside Egypt?
