Aphrodisias: the Museum

July 8, 2011

The Museum at Aphrodisias is every bit as wonderful as the site itself. Particularly nice are the reliefs from the Sebasteion (so nice not to have to go to Boston, Berlin, or London to see the rest of a site!).

Achilles & Penthesilea, Sebasteion





Nero & Agrippina the Younger, Sebasteion


A goddess inscribing a trophy, Sebasteion


Best ancient hair ever?


Bellerophon & Pegasus, Sebasteion
