9781842173121: Assyrian Stone Vessels and Related Material in the British Museum (Classical Texts)

This catalogue makes available more than 600 complete or fragmentary stone vessels kept in the British Museum. Most of them were excavated at Nineveh and other major sites in northern Iraq and Syria, and are presented here for the first time. They range in date from prehistory down to the Persian and Hellenistic periods; the bulk belong in the eighth and seventh centuries, when the Near East under Assyrian rule grew increasingly cosmopolitan. The collection includes luxury items made for palaces and temples, often bearing royal inscriptions, besides many perfume-jars, mortars and other vessels for practical use. The catalogue incorporates extensive information on material culture, art, technology, economic relationships, and social and religious practices, and will be used by historians, archaeologists, philologists and anthropologists alike.

About the Author:

by Ann Searight, Julian Reade and Irving Finkel

Review:

...provides a welcome treatment of a poorly known corpus of material... The volume as a whole will certainly be an important point of future reference for many specialists.' (Andrew Bevan, University College London AJA Online Book Reviews)

A. Searight, J. Reade and I. Finkel deserve our deepest gratitude for their excellent work: they have here presented and analysed the material with special attention to the historical context and other general considerations without ever disregarding the importance and interest of the details. We must be very grateful to the authors for drawing us into the 'excavation' of the old material in the stores of the British Museum. These collections, when carefully studied and presented, continue to shed new light on the culture and history of the Ancient Near East, an objective amply fulfilled by this book.' (Davide Nadali Orientalia, Vol. 79, Fasc. 4, 2010)
