The grand, barrel-vaulted Mary and Michael Jaharis Gallery displays large-scale sculpture and other monumental works of the sixth, fifth, and fourth centuries B.C.
Works of the sixth century include examples from the Museum's distinguished collection of Panathenaic amphorae amid other works related to ancient Greek athletics. In the center of the gallery are displayed large-scale marble copies—made during the Roman period—of bronze statues that were created in Greece during the fifth and fourth centuries but were lost or melted down over time. Original marble statues of the fourth century B.C. are shown by the crowning sculptures of tall Athenian grave monuments.
