The 136 vases presented here have been selected for their artistic or physical rarity, accompanied by labels which explain the political, economic or religious climate in which they were made. This work is thus a crucial resource for researchers and students, but its exploration of ancient Greek, Etruscan and Roman mythology makes it a must-have for anybody with an interest in classical Greek, Etruscan and Roman history.
