Dear visitor,
welcome to my picture gallery.
The gallery contains a large number of pictures. It takes a few seconds for the site to build up (even after the green sign "gallery slideshow" in the upper right corner shows up).

About me:
I am teaching Classics (Ancient Greek and Latin), Theology, modern Greek and Italian. I am particularly interested in Archaeology and History of Ancient Art. One of my other hobbies is photography. Combining these two hobbies I take lots of pictures in museums and archaeological sites and catalogue the photos according to the scientific literature.

About this picture gallery:
Under the relevant categories (of museums and artists) and more systematically on this user page I share a selection of my photos of ancient art.
The site is under construction since January 2020.
I thank all directors of museums who permit photography of the exhibits for private, educational, scientific, non-commercial purposes, thus spreading the knowledge of their treasures in a wider public. I hope that my photos published on wikimedia commons act also as an incentive to visit these museums and admire the works of art directly. Therefore editing the photos I refrain from replacing the background, so that the objects can be seen as displayed in the museum. If you intend to use one of my photos for commercial aims, I would recommend you to contact the museum.

The structure of this picture gallery:
material / object category
→ artistic epoch / date
→→ place of production / findspot
→→→ workshop / artist / object type
