This is a complete study of one of the most important branches of early Greek sculpture, the monuments which Athenian Eupatrids, wealthy landowners of noble lineage, placed upon the tombs of their families from the end of the seventh to the end of the sixth century B.C. No piece, however small or mutilated, has been neglected in this study which Gisela Richter’s painstaking research has made into a complete and convincing sequence of archaic Attic funeral art, from decade to decade.
