Ayia Paraskevi Figurines in the University of Pennsylvania Museum, Paperback / softback Book

Ayia Paraskevi Figurines in the University of Pennsylvania Museum Paperback / softback


The 17 figurines published here are but a small sample of the objects excavated more than 100 years ago at the Bronze Age necropolis at the site of Ayia Paraskevi in Cyprus.

Vassos Karageorghis introduces the volume with an insightful essay on the significance of the site and one of its early excavators, Max Ohnefalsch-Richter.

Terence Brennan contributes information on the history of the Museum's acquisition of these pieces based on a 12-year correspondence between Sara Yorke Stevenson, one of the Museum's early founders, and Ohnefalsch-Richter.

The volume contains a detailed catalogue of the 17 figurines, including bibliography and comparanda.
