Drawings of Mycenae Faience and Exotica, 1953-1955

Reference Code: GBR/3437/MCNE/2/3/12

Scope and Contents

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.
