This fascicule concludes the publication of the Museum's Attic black-figured amphorae by presenting all of its neck-amphorae.
As in the previous fascicule, the vases have been cleaned, and many have been newly restored. The photography is the work of William Pons and his staff, who, with consummate skill and untiring patience, accomplished an arduous task.
The sequence follows the principles established in MMA fasc. 3 of segregating the vases according to shapes and their subdivisions. Though vases by the same painter are thus often separated, the overriding considerations of shape and scheme of decoration permit an objective arrangement, the significance of which can readily be grasped. Within each subdivision the order is chronological.
