This revised and enlarged edition includes 20 of Stevens’s restored drawings of Greek, Roman, and Byzantine buildings in Athens, Corinth, Tivoli, and Leptis Magna, as well as a plan of the Acropolis at Athens and a photograph of Stevens’s model of the Acropolis. A brief explanatory text and a bibliographic reference accompany each plate. The beauty of these precise and detailed drawings along with the wealth of archaeological information they incorporate make the famous ancient buildings live for scholars and layman alike.
