Beneath the Cypriot town of Polis Chrysochous ('City of Gold') lie two earlier cities: the ancient Marion, sacked in 312BCE, and Arsinoe, which flourished in the Hellenistic and Roman periods. Over the past 130 years, archaeological excavations have uncovered a wealth of material, principally decorated pottery. Produced to accompany an exhibition at Princeton University Art Museum, this magnificent catalogue explores the history and culture of the sites, and illustrates 110 artefacts, nearly half of them never published before.
