Studies in Gems and Jewellery

This new series is in the same format as Studies in the History of Collections and Studies in Classical Archaeology and has the same publishers - The Classical Art Research Centre and The Beazley Archive in the University of Oxford and Archaeopress, the Oxford-based publisher of British Archaeological Reports. It is intended for studies in gems and jewellery from ancient to neo-classical, both monographs and the publication of contents of collections, and is inspired by the Beazley Archive's rich resources of gem impressions and casts, gathered first by Sir John Beazley himself, later by John Boardman, Martin Henig, and others.

Volume III
Catalogue of the Engraved Gems and Finger-rings in the Ashmolean Museum II. Roman

by Martin Henig and Arthur MacGregor, with Victoria Andrews, Robin Latour, Clare Maxfield, Rania-Julia Psofogiannakis, Claudia Wagner, Mary Whiting

Oxford University's collection of Greek, Etruscan and Roman gems and rings, in the Ashmolean Museum, is one of the most representative in the world. This volume publishes the Roman gems and finger-rings; the Greek and Etruscan were published by John Boardman and Marie-Louise Vollenweider in 1978. The second volume offers full descriptions, comment and enlarged photographs. Bequests from important collectors, such as Arthur Evans, Charles Drury Fortnum and G.J. Chester have ensured that the full range of styles and engraving is represented in the collection.
