Marbleworkers in the Athenian Agora, Paperback / softback Book

Marbleworkers in the Athenian Agora Paperback / softback

Part of the Agora Picture Book series


The 5th-century B.C. poet Pindar remarked on the rich sculptural decoration of the Athenian Agora, and, indeed, over 3,500 pieces of various types of sculpture have been uncovered during its excavation.

This full-color guide sheds new light on the marble industry in and around the Agora, including rich evidence for sculptors' workshops, their tools, and techniques.

The text discusses the works of both famous and anonymous artists.
