The University of Canterbury's Logie Collection is an outstanding selection of antiquities from the Greek and Roman world. It includes high quality pottery from Classical Greece, some of it world famous, and also a range of other material such as tomb-groups from the Early Bronze Age of Cyprus, marble and terracotta portraits and figurines, glass from Roman Britain, funerary inscriptions from Rome, stone reliefs from Egypt, and pottery from ancient Etruria. The collection began in the 1950s in memory of the former registrar of the university, James Logie. This superbly illustrated catalogue provides a description of the complete collection of 248 objects, together with discussion of their place in the contemporary world.
J. R. Green is emeritus professor of classical archaeology at the University of Sydney. He is the former director of excavations at the site of the Greek theater in Paphos, the ancient capital of Cyprus.
