Various audiences will appreciate the accessibility of the scholarship presented here-students may engage in further study on some of topics raised by individual pieces or groups of sculptures, and the scholarly community will welcome a work that provides an up-to-date and comprehensive examination of a significant classical sculpture collection in one of the world's great archaeology museums.University Museum Monograph, 125
