About this product
- DescriptionRaised to hour Maussolos, a Persian satrap of the 4th century BCE, the Maussolleion in Halikarnassos was rewned throughout the ancient world as one of its Seven Wonders. Pliny the Elder provided a useful description of it several centuries later, but ather fourteen passed before the invention of moveable type made his observations available to a wider public. In Volume 5, Jeppesen tries to reconcile Pliny's account of the superstructure with recent archaeological finds. The passage in Pliny's Natural History has been corrupted by untold generations of copyists, and reconstructions have focused on producing a grammatically acceptable text, with little regard for consistency and sense. Jeppesen compares variant readings from the 58 kwn manuscripts and proposes a model that tallies with the new archaeological evidence. The volume concludes with a survey of the architectural fragments held by the British Museum and the Maussolleion Museum in Bodrum.
