The Lansdowne Herakles, a marble statue that was a personal favourite of J. Paul Getty, is just one of the examples of the objects showcased in this book. Greek and Etruscan terracotta vases, bronze and marble sculpture, and delicate late Classical and Ptolemaic gold jewelry are a testimony to the extraordinary skill and artistic achievments of sculptors, potters, painters, metalsmiths, and other artisans of the ancient Mediterranean world.
