Catalogue of the Acropolis Museum: Volume 2, Sculpture and Architectural Fragments by Stanley Casson

Originally published in 1921, this book contains the second half of the catalogue of the sculptures held in the collection of the Acropolis Museum in Athens. In this volume, Casson lists the sculptural and architectural fragments in the museum dating from after 480 BC. The detailed text is accompanied with drawings and photographs of many of the sculptures listed, including sculptures from the Temple of Athena Nike and several sections of the Parthenon Frieze. A special section at the end by Dorothy Brooke is devoted to the terracotta finds from the Acropolis. This well-presented and thoroughly researched book will be of value to anyone with an interest in ancient Greek art.
