About this title


This fourth and final volume of the catalogue discusses almost 550 examples made of metal and a few of stone, and also some lampstands. The Museum's collection of metal lamps and stands are second to none in its quality and variety. The date range this volume covers is from the Minoan period and the Cypriote Late Bronze Age to the rise of Islam in the middle of the seventh century AD, and includes Greek, Hellenistic and Etruscan lamps. Each item is illustrated and the copper alloys are analysed in detail.
