Summary

The publication, Classical Antiquities at New York University, is a catalogue of the most interesting objects from NYUs archaeological collection, which includes pieces from Egypt, the Near East, Cyprus, Greece, South Italy, and Rome. The purpose of the catalogue is to re-contextualize the objects selected and to make the historic objects accessible to a larger audience. Some pieces have been published for the first time. The volume is a publication of NYUs Center for Ancient Studies. College of Arts and Science Dean Matthew Santirocco, who directs the center, noted that this volume represents precisely the sort of interdisciplinary collaboration that the Center attempts to foster. The authors of the various entries are students and alumni of the Department of Classics and the Institute of Fine Arts, as well as scholars from elsewhere in the United States and abroad. Aside from editing the volume, Bonfante contributed entries for the Etruscan section of the collection, while Fowlkes wrote several of the Roman entries.
