Iberia Graeca. Greek Art in the Museums and Collections of the Iberian Peninsula

This book presents the main collections of Greek art objects existing in different museums and cultural institutions in Spain and Portugal. These collections have been formed through purchases, legacies and donations of archaeological materials, most of which do not come from sites of the Iberian Peninsula. This publication is a complement to the previous book: Iberia Graeca. The Greek Archaeological Legacy on the Iberian Peninsula.
