    When we speak of Greek bronze originals and Roman marble copies, we may not be taking into consideration the importance of ancient technologies and the ancient marketplace. What is a true Greek bronze "original," and was there a market for copies in Greece as well as in Rome? This lecture will explore the relationships between technology and market demand in the classical world, and address the influence of newly discovered statues upon modern interpretations of ancient bronze statuary. This lecture is presented in conjunction with the Ancient Bronzes workshop.

    Free admission.

    Reception to follow lecture. Limited complimentary parking at Broadway Garage, 7 Felton Street.
