Georg Loeschcke (June 28, 1852 - November 26, 1915) was a German archaeologist who was born in Penig, Saxony. He studied archaeology under Johannes Overbeck in Leipzig, and afterwards at the University of Bonn, where he was a student of Reinhard Kekul von Stradonitz. In 1877-78 he participated in a study trip to Greece and Italy under the aegis of the Deutsches Arch ologisches Institut. As a result of this research he published Mykenische Thongef e, a landmark work on Mycenaean pottery that he co-authored with Adolf Furtw ngler. This book gave important historical timelines regarding Mycanaean pottery, and provided distinctions between it and Geometric pottery. In 1879 Loeschcke became a professor of philology and archaeology at the University of Dorpat, where he co-authored another important work on Mycenaean pottery with Furtw ngler titled Mykenische Vasen (1886). In 1887 he was appointed first secretary to the Deutsches Arch ologisches Institut in Athens, and two years later succeeded Kekul as professor at the University of Bonn. At Bonn, he was dean to the faculty (1895-96), university rector (1909-10) and director of the university museum (1889-1912).
