Alison Frantz Photos - Images by photographer and archaeologist Alison Frantz (1903-1995) depicting Archaic and Classical sculpture, Greek archaeological sites and various finds. The collection was created between the late 1940’s – early 1970’s.
Dorothy Burr Thompson Photos - Images from Dorothy Burr Thompson (1900–2001), excavator and leading expert in ancient terracottas. The collection covers the period 1923-1955, and includes images from her travels in Greece, Turkey and Italy. In addition to the archaeological information, the collection is a mosaic of information about architecture, landscapes and customs that no longer exist.

Historical Photos - Various photographs from the archives in the Gennadius Library documenting moments of Greek history, from the late 19th to the early 20th century. Photos are collected from the Dragoumis family, the papers of Athanasios Souliotis, Nikolaos Mavris and others, as well as from the papers of author Stratis Myrivilis who fought in the Balkan Wars and the Greek-Turkish War (1919-1922).

Well at 8/ΙΑ-ΙΒ, beneath the north colonnade of the Square Peristyle, just west of the north end of the Stoa of Attalos. Quite uniform fill. Diameter 1.15m. No P.O.U.
Narrow trench in bedrock; one section found to NE of Circular Building west of the Stoa of Attalos, another (Q 8:1) beneath the terrace of the Stoa of Attalos opposite Pier 19. A single filling in both sections, with a high proportion of good black vases.
Well at 19/ΚΔ, beneath the west colonnade of the Square Market Building in the northeast corner of the Agora. Diameter ca. 1.25m. Water level ca. -3.50m. The construction of the well was rather careless, perhaps caused by the soft crumbly nature of the bedrockNo distinction in date or character could be observed in the filling, from just below the top to the bottom. The concentration of the more complete vases near the bottom, suggested however that the shaft had served as a water supply. In the…
With cistern at 17/ΟΕ-ΟΣΤ (P 10:2), two chambers connected by a passage.18/Π went out of use first and was closed off from 17/ΟΕ-ΟΣΤ; filled up at one time with material dating between 350 and 300 B.C. with a miscellaneous collection of tiles, coarse pottery and other household objects, with a few good black-glazed pieces and two dateable coins.17/ΟΕ-ΟΣΤ continued in use until ca. 250 B.C. when it was filled up at one time with an apparently contemporary group of discarded household pottery. A s…
Stoa Construction Fills (n.b. for all Stoa and pre-Stoa fills later than construction filling of Square Peristyle see P-R 6-12) Over 100 stamped amphora handles in fill. No long-petal bowls, but one fragment in fill over floor of Square Peristyle, directly under fill of Stoa of Attalos and possibly intrude from it.
Dumped fill in a shaft which served as means of access leading to a water channel south of the Stoa of Attalos.
Well behind Stoa Shop 18 (Well G: EB). Provides useful antecedents for many later shapes both black and plain.Diameter at bottom 0.88m. Eight pairs of footholds preserved. The influx of water during excavation was moderate. No stratification. Mostly third quarter of 7th century B.C., with a little material of the last quarter.NOTE: XVIII has been erased and replaced by XVII (p. 2906). In the index is written XVI (p. 5423).
Well East of Stoa Room 11; no appreciable change in pottery top to bottom; dumped fill of Augustan times.
Well East of Stoa Room 6 (well with Siana Cup); scanty dumped filling.No water. Well never used.
Thra (ΘΡΑ) Well (East of Stoa Room 2). Heavy dumped filling, including figured, black and plain wares, and also a quantity of animal bones, mostly skulls of oxen. On many of these the horns had been sawn off sharply near the base; the freshness of the sawn surface suggested that this had been done at the time of slaughtering rather than while the animal was till alive.This deposit has much in common with the more spectacular Q 12:3; here the black-figure supports the association with the Persin …
No period of use. Below the upper (Early Roman) dump extending down to ca. 6.10m. was a dumped fill of broken pottery in great quantity, including a high proportion of red-figured fragments. Masses of broken mud brick and numerous roof tiles show that this dump was debris from some house or shop. Objects P 9255-P 9258, P 21333, SS 11145 are from the lower filling, but from immediately below the later drains and belong to their context.Objects P 34998 and P 34999 are from this deposit but no fill…
Well in street leading to Roman Agora. Not excavated below 2.10m.This has the same date as the latest pieces in R 13:1 (JWH).
Well at 21/Ε (beneath Library of Pantainos).The clearing of the well was abandoned because of a cave-in of the rock walls. Heavy dumped filling, the proportion of fine black table ware high.
Cistern at 43/ΙΣΤ, outside the southeast corner of the market square, slightly west of the Panathenaic way. A small neat plaster-lined cistern filled with material evidently all dumped at the same time.
Cistern on the lower Acropolis slopes, west of Panathenaic Way; dumped filling of 1st century B.C.Bottom diameter 3.90m. Cistern with connecting draw-shaft and a dead end tunnel dates from Late Hellenistic times. Most of the fill in it however was of early Roman period.Four stamped amphora handles. Types 48 D and 51 b lamps indicate cistern remained open until end of 2nd c.
Cistern at 17-18/ΛΑ (Coroplasts' Dump) outside the market square to the southeast, west of the Panathenaic Way.Upper and lower fill distinguished during excavation, but material from both appears to be contemporary.The cistern S 19:3 and the well S 19:8, together with a Roman well S 19:1, had collapsed to form a large pit (S 19:5). The cistern was dug separately, although some of its distinctive fill of terracotta figurines and votive material had fallen into the pit S 19:5.
