A trip around the Mediterranean

A visit to the Department of Classical and Near Eastern Antiquities is like a voyage around the Mediterranean, with a detour east to Mesopotamia and Persia. Here are Egyptian mummies, Assyrian reliefs, and Persian ceramics, Etruscan gold jewelry, Roman household utensils, Greek sculpture, and a large collection of Greek vases. Together they tell stories about life and death, about religion, and about politics in antiquity.
