On to Grecian relics!
A reconstruction of the Nereid Monument from Xanthos. They’re frank about the fact that the “original place of many of the sculptures on the building is open the question and [this reconstruction] is disputed.”
A couple of metopes from a series showing battles between the centaurs and Lapith. Kind of amusing how statues and carvings tend to lose the heads and limbs most often.
*inserts random pretty floor tile picture*
Of course, besides the Parthenon stuff they had Grecian pottery and smaller artifacts as well. Here’s some Athenian pottery and small carvings:
Coins, also Athenian.
The room with all the pottery samples from the – err.. the pre-Classical Greek era? – were kept in a room that was surprisingly “normal” to me. It even had a kind of old-ish feel… dunno how to describe it properly. hahah Well-maintained still, but it just felt rather different from the other parts of the museum.
One more post to after this for the British Museum!
