Product description

The fifth-century B.C. poet Pindar remarked on the rich sculptural decoration of the Athenian Agora, and, indeed, over 3,500 pieces of various types of sculpture have been uncovered during its excavation. This full-color guide sheds new light on the marble industry in and around the Agora, including rich evidence for the sculptors' workshops, their tools and techniques. It discusses the works of both famous and anonymous artists.

Review quote

Marbleworkers in the Athenian Agora is a worthy addition to the Agora Picture Book series. It is concise, informative, and full of color photographs, the like of which rarely appears in more specialized publications. Academic teachers will be happy to add this booklet to their lists of bibliography, and interested students will find in it more than enough to spark their interest in Greek and Roman sculpture and the Athenian Agora. -- Nassos Papalexandrou Bryn Mawr Classical Review January 2007 This terrific series of short introductions to various aspects of the Agora is embellished by this latest edition,' -- Alan Beale JACT 2007
