These five watercolours were created by P. de Jong in 1955, to document and reconstruct the imagery painted on Mycenaean plaster flooring. The brightly coloured frescoes were excavated beneath the southern end of the main corridor of the House of the Oil Merchant in 1950, part of the complex of ‘Ivory Houses’ outside of the citadel. This building had functioned as a mix of domestic, workshop and administrative space early in the 13th century BCE.
This file gathers together drawings of excavated objects that share the feature of being made from high status and precious materials. All the faience objects illustrated here, and a rhyton made of steatite, were excavated in the House of Shields, one of the ‘Ivory Houses’ outside the citadel. Additionally, a tiny brass wing inlaid with gold and silver, found in the House of Lead on the Atreus ridge, rounds off this ensemble.
Drawings of pottery from pre 1920 Mycenae excavations and comparanda from other Greek Bronze Age sites
This eclectic small group of drawings illustrate either artefacts excavated at Mycenae and Tiryns during Schliemann’s excavations in the 19th century or Mycenaean objects excavated by archaeologists at Korakou in the Peloponnese and Phylakopi on the Cycladic island of Melos. A. J. B. Wace used these pictorial studies to inform his research, as comparanda for objects he himself was excavating at Mycenae.
