The J. Paul Getty Museum's antiquities collection contains more than fifty thousand ancient objects. Spanning thousands of years--from Preclassical times as far back as the third millennium B.C. through the third century A.D.--it encompasses Cycladic, Greek, Etruscan, South Italian, Roman, and Romano-Egyptian cultures. The collection includes one of the finest assemblages of ancient Greek vases in the United States; monumental marble sculptures and diminutive bronzes; Greek and Roman gems; and Hellenistic silverware, jewelry, and glass. In lively prose accompanied by a full-color photograph of each object, this handbook presents nearly two hundred of the Getty Museum's most important pieces in the antiquities collection.
