Ancient portraits from the Athenian Agora

"Although the famous bronze statues seen by the Roman tourist Pausanias have been melted down, the Agora preserves a number of fine stone figures. Only a few of these are named, and most of the portraits in this book represent ordinary men and women; priests, athletes, and officials. Referring to over 40 black and white photos, the author discusses hairstyles, clothing and facial expressions to shed light on the individuals depicted."
