Drawings of Seals and sealings, 1939-1955
Scope and Contents
This collection of drawings illustrates highlights of the sealstones and sealings excavated by the British at Mycenae in the seasons after 1920-1923. The exception is the line drawings of a clay sealing of 3 quadrupeds, discovered in 1920 by A. J. B. Wace in the Rhyton well at the top of the Ramp within the citadel. (MCNE/2/3/04/17). This image was drawn nearly two decades after its discovery to provide the gold-embossed design on the front cover of Wace’s book Mycenae: An Archaeological History and Guide (1949).
