Ancient Art Highlights

The collection of art from the ancient Mediterranean world comprises over 13,000 objects from the Near East, Egypt, Greece, Etruria, and Rome. The collection is also known for its important finds from Yale’s excavations in the 1920s and 30s at Dura-Europos (in present-day Syria) and at Gerasa (now Jerash, Jordan).
