Some 200 rare objects from the classical period—the Bronze Age to the late Roman Empire—are brought together in this exploration of the cultural exchanges between Egypt, Greece, and Rome. Among the exhibits are Egyptian stone vessels, Greek pottery and portraits, and Roman luxury goods that, in their form and style, demonstrate the connections that were made in an evolving artistic milieu.
