Description

Part of the BM's series of short guides showcasing their finest exhibits, Ian Jenkins here looks at the Lion of Knidos, an enormous marble sculpture, originally part of a funerary monument on the Ionian coast of Turkey. The text charts the process by which the lion came to Britain, and, using the evidence from recent excavations at Knidos, and comparison with other similar monuments, reconstructs the tomb which the lion would have topped.show more
