Greeks in Cambridge: The Fitzwilliam Museum


Recommended Posts

Today I was captivated by the beauty of two Syracusan Decadrachms signed by Kimon (according to description) in The Fitzwilliam Museum (CM.YG.III9-R, McClean Collection, CM.MC.2734-R).

The photos make no justice to their beauty and I could not find them in the online database.



Silenus from Naxos looked relaxed - not fearing deportation to Italy.



The collection is just amazing. They even have an impressive selection of early Meissen’s figurines, my soft spot.

🙂 Yet. 

Both Cambridge and Oxford sadly are a  long way behind where they could  be in online documentation. Oxford's hiring for the role (or soliciting help - Heberden Room) at the moment I think,  as  is the BM more formally.
