Departmental Antiquities Collection
The departmental antiquities collection consists of Cypriot, Greek, Etruscan and Roman objects collected by early chairmen of the Classics Department. It was housed on the University Heights campus for many years, until that campus was sold in 1972. It has its origins as a study collection in the early years of the twentieth century, and offers an interesting insight into the history of collecting at a particular moment of American scholarship. When the antiquities came downtown, an opportunity was provided for students to gain experience in hands-on work with Greek vases, Roman sculpture, Latin inscriptions and other types of objects. They have an opportunity to consult the computerized inventory and to work on projects connected with the collection.
An illustrated catalogue of the New York University collections including objects from the Conservation Center of the Institute of Fine Arts, edited by Larissa Bonfante and Blair Fowlkes, was published in 2006 as the first volume of a series of the Center for Ancient Studies. An international group of scholars as well as New York University students have collaborated to publish the most important pieces and groups of objects from the collection, and to recontextualize many of them in the light of recent research. Though the inscriptions will be published in a later volume, some of the objects include inscribed texts, in which two ancient personalities, the Roman Pupiena and the Etruscan Larthaia Telicles, make their appearance.
