Attic Inscriptions in UK Collections: 5: Lyme Park

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

AIUK 5 publishes new editions of the two Attic inscriptions at Lyme Park, Cheshire, both of them funerary monuments with relief sculpture dating from the fourth century BC. In addition to analysis of the monuments in their ancient context, the volume explores the engaging history of their acquisition in Athens in 1811 or 1812 by Thomas Legh and their display as part of his design for the Library of Lyme Park. AIUK 5 also discusses briefly the intriguing uninscribed piece of fourth-century Athenian sculpture depicting a seated man with comic masks, which is displayed in the same room.
