Quick Overview

Pietilä-Castrén, Leena & Berg, Ria & Parko, Heini et al.
Corpus vasorum antiquorum. Finland, fascicule 1
Finnish Society of Sciences and Letters
Ekenäs 2003, 143 + 91 pp.


The Finnish collections of Graeco-Roman pottery result mostly from haphazard acquisitions since the beginning of the nineteenth century, and are in only a very few cases the fruits of systematic collection. As, for almost two centuries, the tradition of classical archaeology in Finland has depended on the interest of private individuals, it is no wonder that only two objects in the present CVA volume are previously published.The CVA Finland, fascicule 1 thus fills a major scholarly and museological gap. The study and publication of these vases aims to dispel their anonymity, conveying them to anyone interested in Greek and Roman pottery.
