"The Ring of Nestor".

£56.00

Product description

From "Journal of Hellenic Studies", XLV, April 1925. 75 pp. With five plates, one coloured and four collotype, and fifty-four figures in the text. The article describes form and iconic sources for the objects found in 1915 in a Mycenaean rock tomb near the site of Thisbe in Boeotia. The three chamber-tombs with dromoi contained different objects such as spear heads and signet beads objects, and 13 "intaglios" are exhibited and studied, in connection with other similar objects which they resemble. From bull-killing to sacred knots, from Goddesses and kourai to sacrifice rhytes, the study is rich and thorough. The article is bound in hard cover, with dark red cloth and gilt lettering. The front board is a bit worn on the edges, and bears signs of wear and a stain of some liquid spilled over in the upper right hand corner. The preliminary leaves and endpages are foxed. Handwritten note of owner dated Easter 1940 on preliminary leaf.
