Classic Art and Antiquities Collection

The John Elliott Classics Museum houses one of the University’s most significant and valuable cultural collections. The first items were acquired more than a century ago, but the heart of the collection, pottery displaying the development of ancient Greek artistic styles, was begun in 1954.

Highlights include an Egyptian tomb door and a Roman military sword.
