In 1989 Ernest Allen bequeathed a fine collection of 25 classical vases and terracottas to Haverford College. The range of objects includes a Mycenean stirrup jar, a selection of black- and red-figure vases, a white-ground lekythos, several fine archaic terracottas, and two Duver plaques with colorful striding griffins. Dr. Ashmead presents an overview of each object and its significance along with a scholarly approach to complete detailed descriptions and comparanda. Each piece is illustrated by black-and-white photographs.
