This catalogue raisonné describes a little-known but very interesting collection originally assembled by one of the important Canadian collectors of the early 20th century. After an account of the collection's history and a brief discussion of the techniques of ancient glass-making, the catalogue proper presents 191 pieces comprising a very wide range of typical forms, each of them fully illustrated. Publishing this extensive collection renders it available to a wide readership: students, curators, archaeologists, art historians, collectors and everybody with serious interest in the material culture of the ancient world. It is the first of a series intended to make public the different parts of the museum's collection of Mediterranean antiquities.

Based on the archaeological context of the vessels, this book offers an overview of the production and distribution of early Attic black-figured pottery until the end of the first quarter of the sixth century B.C., aiming at an afresh approach to early Archaic Attika.

Recognizing the traditional place held by the Hekatompedon Inscription (IG I3 4) in classical studies, this book presents evidence for the meaning of the inscription that comes from its facture, leading to the question of the origin of the stoikhedon style and of Egypt's role in that emergence.

The condemnation of memory inexorably altered the visual landscape of imperial Rome. This volume catalogues and interprets the sculptural, glyptic, numismatic and epigraphic evidence for damnatio memoriae and ultimately reveals its praxis to be at the core of Roman cultural identity.
