Chapter 8. Supplementary Evidence for Sculpture from Sardis: Sculpture from Other Sites in Lydia
Sculpture from Other Sites in Lydia
Of the following pieces, 261 through 268 were collected by the Sardis Expedition on exploratory trips or brought to the expedition camp by local residents. They were acquired on behalf of the Archaeological Museum in Manisa. We also include three pieces (269-271) for which a Sardian origin has been alleged but seems unlikely.
Cat. 261: Small Recumbent Lion
Cat. 262: Funerary Stele
Cat. 264: Stele with Orans
Cat. 265: Relief with Two Soldiers and Dedication
Cat. 266: Unfinished Herakles
Cat. 267: Head of Dionysus
Cat. 268: Draped Female Torso
The following three pieces from other sites in Lydia have in the past been mistakenly attributed to Sardis.
Cat. 269: The “Borgia Stele”
Cat. 270: Honorary Stele with Horseman
Cat. 271: Hermes-like Statuette Dedicated to Hosion Kai Dikaion
