The Iconography of Sculptured Statue Bases in the Archaic and Classical Periods
Angeliki Kosmopoulou

Wisconsin Studies in Classics
William Aylward, Nicholas D. Cahill, and Patricia A. Rosenmeyer, Series Editors

The only systematic study in any language of all known Greek statue bases with sculptural relief, both surviving and known through literary sources

“This comprehensive material on sculptured statue bases has never been gathered and presented before in any language, so Kosmopoulou’s work is of great importance for archaeologists, historians of art and of religion, and scholars of ancient culture (including athletics and gender studies).”
—Brunilde S. Ridgway, Bryn Mawr College, author of Hellenistic Sculpture, volumes 1–3

Angeliki Kosmopoulou is head of the Department of Publications at the Athens Concert Hall in Athens, Greece. She holds a Ph.D. in classical and Near Eastern archaeology and has been an adjunct professor of archaeology at the University of Thessaly.


“Provides an excellent survey of the material, both surviving and lost . . . a welcome addition to any specialized library.”
Minerva, 2004
