The collections of the Mediterranean Section of the University of Pennsylvania Museum are among the finest in the United States. This book presents an overview of the new permanent exhibition. The objects are discussed in the context of various aspects of Greek life—athletics, banqueting, education, trade, burial, etc. The many full-color photographs capture the vividness of Greek pottery and the subtle finish of the marble statuary.
Donald White is Curator of the Mediterranean Section of the University Museum.
