Extraordinary Artworks from Dura-Europos

The recently reinstalled Mary and James Ottaway Gallery of Ancient Dura-Europos offers a new perspective on this ancient city, located on the Euphrates River in present-day Syria. Emphasizing the strong cultural and commercial ties between Dura and neighboring Palmyra, the new display features extraordinary sculptures from the 1st to the 3rd century A.D. The gallery showcases the art and artifacts excavated at Dura-Europos during the Yale-French archaeological campaign in the 1920s and 1930s.
